Registered Mental Health Nurse - Permanent

  • Great location in Parnell, close to train station,
  • Brand new team, energetic dynamic organisation  

Acurity Health Group is establishing an outpatient clinic for New Zealanders who experience moderate mental health problems.

Our new mental health service will extend to a broad range of mental health challenges including mood, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, substance use disorders and some age-related conditions. Our patient's will be offered both individual care and group psychological therapies in half and full day programs, personalised to their needs.

We are looking to recruit 1 full time Registered Mental Health Nurse to provide a range of group and individual interventions at our new clinic in Parnell, which we anticipate will open late 2019. The clinic will provide a range of talking therapies for people with moderate mental health problems. Alongside these interventions, the nurse is expected to participate in rTMS treatments. (Training will be provided) 

Working closely with the clinical manager and local psychiatrists, we expect this service to develop over the next few months in the Metropolitan area. The role will demand a degree of flexibility and creativity in terms of understanding some of the known gaps around mental health provision in the community; and then providing services which reflect the market needs. 

Initially the focus will be on opening and promoting the service, assisting with coaching new staff and delivering a range of mental health interventions. As the service gains momentum, there will be a need to develop more programmes and interventions.  

This role is a great opportunity for the right person. That person will have solid mental health skills in providing best practice assessments and interventions, they will have expertise in running therapeutic groups and be able to take an active part in service development.   

Mandatory requirements

You must be eligible to work in New Zealand to apply for this role.
