Overview

An exciting opportunity to work in Cornwall Foundation NHS Trust’s Centre for Mental Health and Justice. This Band 6 Occupational Therapist post involves delivering and coordinating services to the Offender Personality Disorder (OPD) Pathway and the Intensive Integrated Risk Management Service (IIRMS). The post is held within the Centre for Mental Health and Justice which delivers four strands of clinical activity including the Homelessness Vulnerability Liaison Service, the Criminal Justice Liaison and Diversion Service, the Community Forensic Team and the OPD/IIRMS Services.

Cornwall and Plymouth’s OPD service is well-established and seeks to support Offender Managers working within the National Probation Service to work effectively with Personality Disordered Offenders. This is achieved through a thorough screening, consultation and formulation process. Furthermore, there are joint casework and workforce development strands. The IIRMS service aims to offer an additional layer of psychologically informed support and skills development to offenders who may struggle with the transition from custody to the community. The Occupational Therapist post in both the OPD and IIRMS services is critical in understanding the offenders needs and motivation to engage with meaningful activities that will have a positive impact on risk behaviours. There will be opportunities to be involved in developing formulations of offenders, delivering training and psychoeducational interventions and supervising staff.
