My background from secondary care Mental Health Services has provided me with the experience of working with acute and enduring mental health problems. I have experience of working in a crisis team and liaison providing comprehensive risk assessments and treatment in A&E departments and community settings.
In 2004 I commenced work as a Senior Community Mental Health Worker in assisting the Team Leader in setting up an Early Intervention in Psychosis Team in the Community. This service provided assessment and treatment to individuals with first onset psychosis from the ages of 14 to 35 years. Whilst working in Early Intervention I commenced my MSc in Psychosocial Interventions (PSI). I am passionate about working with individuals using a holistic approach as opposed to the traditional medical model.
