NURSING OFFICER MENTAL HEALTH – UK ROYAL ARMY


NURSING OFFICER MENTAL HEALTH – UK ROYAL ARMY

What you’ll do

Mental Health Nursing in the Royal Navy offers a unique career unlike what you’ll find in the NHS. Our Mental Health teams are critical to maintaining the psychological health and well-being of our personnel, ensuring they are fit to deploy around the world. Routinely, you’d work in one of our Department of Community Mental Health centres in Plymouth, Portsmouth or Faslane in Scotland.

As well as carrying out the initial assessments of your patients, we’ll give you extra training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, group therapy and many more to enable you to treat your patients too. We deploy our mental health nurses around the world when required.

This could be in support of the Maritime Role 3 capability on board RFA Argus, caring for clinical staff and patients alike. Or you could be part of the Waterfront Logistics Support Group; a network of specialists ready to deploy to ships and units around the world, should the need arise.
