An exciting opportunity has arisen for qualified mental health practitioners with a special interest and knowledge in Perinatal Mental health to play a key part in the development of a new specialist team that is currently being recruited to work across the whole BCUHB area. Perinatal Mental Health is currently very high on the Welsh Government and BCUHB agenda and this is a unique time to join an emerging new service which will represent BCUHB at a local and national level at the all Wales Perinatal Mental Health Steering group.

The team will be multi disciplinary and will work directly with women and their families providing assessment and support for pregnant women and new mothers with a range of mental health needs. The team will work closely with colleagues from maternity, children’s services and adult mental health (both in patient services and community teams) offering joined up care co ordination and acting as a specialist knowledge hub for Perinatal Mental Health. Advice, training and support will be offered to other professionals working across BCUHB, Primary Care and the third sector providers who are delivering low level preventative support to new mothers in some communities across North Wales.

This is a new multi disciplinary service and the post holders will need to be able to work and communicate effectively across a range of professional disciplines, Primary Care and the third sector to deliver high quality clinical care for women and to develop their own knowledge and expertise so they can support and train other professionals to ensure that awareness and understanding of Perinatal Mental health issues grows as the team develops.

BCUHB are looking for experienced Mental Health Practitioners who want to be a key part of this brand new multi disciplinary team and can demonstrate a range of skills and qualities that can help build a specialist Perinatal Mental Health team that will provide integrated, high quality care and deliver excellent outcomes for women and their families across North Wales.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
