Combat Stress was established in 1919. We are the UK's leading charity for veterans' mental health. For over a century, we've helped former servicemen and women deal with trauma-related mental health conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression.
Today we provide UK-wide support to veterans from every service and every conflict, on the phone and online, in the community and at our treatment centres. We're on a mission to raise awareness that invisible injuries can be just as hard to cope with as physical ones. So, when a veteran is having a tough time, we're there to help tackle the past and to take on the future.
About the role:
The role will include managing a complex case load of veterans with co-existing mental health, physical health and drug and alcohol problems. The role will work in partnership with the Inter Disciplinary team, attending multi-agency reviews, completing full clinical assessments for veterans on various treatment pathways who require support around their drug and alcohol use. As a specialist Nurse this will also include completing structured mental health and substance misuse interventions to assist and promote recovery.
Leading and supporting other members of the inter disciplinary team, you will provide high quality nursing interventions to veterans. The post holder will work in a small team, carrying a case load of more complex patients, who have co-existing conditions.
This role is subject to a DBS check.
As a healthcare environment, and for the health and wellbeing of our staff, veterans and visitors, we encourage everyone at Combat Stress especially professionals that are veteran facing to take up the offer to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19
What we offer:
You will work within a reputable charity that is constantly evolving to meet the needs of our veterans, that has a fantastic cause and a committed follower base.
