Together is an amazing place to work. And it’s not just because we’re one of the UK’s oldest and most respected mental health charities.

The Role                                                                                                                  

The Forensic Mental Health Practitioner service (FMHP) forms part of Together’s Criminal Justice Directorate.  You’ll be a highly motivated and independent thinker with a professional qualification in a related area (e.g. Mental Health Nurse, IAPT Practitioner, Occupational Therapist, Chartered Psychologist) and / or a relevant academic qualification (MSc level or equivalent).

A number of Liaison & Diversion Practitioner roles are or will become available in the near future.  These roles require the successful individual to work in Metropolitan Police Custody Suites, Magistrates Courts within London.
