Brevin’s world-leading clinical and psychological professionals focus their expertise in a home environment to treat the individual’s specific needs and to aid recovery in the most effective and discreet manner.
Community Psychiatric Nurses
Mental health nurses are responsible for planning and providing support, medical and nursing care to people who have a range of mental health issues. They work as part of a team of professional and medical staff that includes doctors, social workers, therapists and psychiatrists. They support people with issues ranging from anxiety and depression to personality and eating disorders or addiction to drugs or alcohol. Mental health nurses may specialise in working with a particular group, for example young people or offenders.

At BREVIN we take your privacy very seriously and we use the utmost discretion when contacting you. Everything that we talk about is kept in the strictest confidence and will not be shared by BREVIN to anyone outside the organisation without obtaining your consent first.
Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners
Psychological wellbeing practitioners are trained to assess and support people with common mental health problems – principally anxiety disorders and depression – in the self-management of their recovery.
They assess and support adults who are experiencing common mental health difficulties such as mild to moderate symptoms of depression, anxiety and low mood, offering a range of low-intensity, practical, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)-based interventions that help clients to manage their own recovery.
Support workers employed by Brevin have mental health experience, providing emotional support and guidance for patients, including problem-solving advice, learning life skills such as cooking or budgeting, and social modelling (or learned behaviour). They are also referred to as care workers, (sober) companions and healthcare assistants. They don’t necessarily need any qualifications to become a support worker but require the right values and behaviours to work in social care.
Their roles include:
- engaging with patients to establish trusting therapeutic relationships
- supporting people with social and physical activities
- booking and going with people to appointments
- helping with personal care such as support with showering and dressing
- supporting people with eating and drinking
- monitoring individuals’ conditions by observing mental state, taking their temperature, pulse, respiration and weight
- helping with medication
