LINK WORKER SERVICE
In order to support Jewish in-patients in mental health units, Neshomo have recently developed the role of the Mental Health Hospital Link Worker.
The aim of this role is to liaise with in-patient / out-patient psychiatric and chaplaincy staff regarding adult Jewish psychiatric patients, and to offer emotional, cultural and social support to these patients whilst in hospital.
There will be opportunities for this link worker to inform both staff and patients about Jewish statutory, non-statutory and voluntary community agencies, and other organisations to enhance a smooth and successful transition on discharge, working towards the prevention of relapse.
