Essential Requirements: HCPC registration, Social Services Experience
The Early Intervention Team provides a service for those people with first onset psychoses between the ages of 17 and 35 years. The aim of the service is to provide intensive care using the Assertive Community Team model, to prevent relapse, reduce the number of "revolving door" admissions, ensure effective treatment for resistant symptoms, reduce the incidence of suicide and maximise an individual's personal and social functioning. There is emerging evidence that early and assertive intervention in the first-episode psychosis can improve the natural history of the disorder and that service users experience a better outcome with regard to overall quality of life and social functioning, having lower than average length of hospital stay and receive lower doses of antipsychotics. The average length of an intervention is usually three years.
The post holder will work within a multi disciplinary team comprising of Doctors, Psychologist, Social Workers, CPNs, OT, Support and Recovery Workers, Employment Specialists, a Team Manager and team administration staff.
