Salary: £24,000 per annum
Closing date: 31st May 2019
Do you want to help ex Veterans get back into civilian life? Do you understand the difficulties that veterans face when the military career has ended? If so this role could be for you.
We are looking for an experienced Veteran to work with ex veterans to reorientate them into civilian life. The majority of veterans manage this, however some experience mental health attributable to their military service. Your role is to work with a caseload of individuals, supporting them with their mental health needs, providing them with the support and confidence to help them back into to civilian life i.e. work, education, lifestyles.
For those who struggle with civilian life, mental health issues such as depression, addiction and anxiety disorders are very common. Recognising the support that these individuals needs, the Veterans Mental Health Complex Treatment Service (VMH CTS) provides support to individuals with such mental health needs.
Veterans are assessed by the Veterans’ Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (VMH TIL) and identified as requiring a period of intensive and proactive interventions. Some veterans may require intensive treatment programmes, where earlier interventions have not brought about an improvement in their health and wellbeing.
This is a challenging yet rewarding role and we are looking for someone who has the compassion and commitment to improve the mental health of our ex military.
