About the role 

As an Approved Mental Health Professional at Brent Adult Social Care, you’ll respond to individuals requiring formal or informal support as described in the Mental Health Act. 

This is a great time to be joining the service, as the progression of our Approved Mental Health Professionals into senior roles has created new opportunities in teams such as Mental Health, Learning Disabilities, Hospital Discharge, and Access and Information. 

You’ll work to a strength-based approach to promote the independence, interests, and rights of our residents and their families.  

Across our Adult Social Care service, we strive to deliver a culture of working together, positive risk-taking, and accountability. Our core aim is to support our residents to be influential, active members of our community.
