Jessica Kershaw - Community Psychiatric Nurse
I work as a mental health nurse for the PATH Early Intervention in Psychosis service, who provide a specialist support and treatment pathway for individuals and their families experiencing their first episode of psychosis.
My role as a care coordinator in the team is really varied and I support service users achieve their goals by providing a range of interventions. I like how every day is unique and brings a different challenge. As a mental health nurse I feel privileged to be a part of peoples recovery journey and it is very rewarding to know that the PATH team’s input has made a positive difference to someone’s life.
Hearing positive feedback from service users and carers is really special and rewarding and makes the more challenging days worth while. There are many training opportunities available within the PATH team and lots of opportunities to develop your skills, including training in the use of specialist psychosis assessment tools, Family Intervention for Psychosis, physical health monitoring and much more. The PATH team is very supportive and I feel privileged to be part of such a great service.
