Mental health nurse role and responsibilities at TCS

The role and responsibilities of a community mental health nurse at TCS can change daily. This is to ensure the client’s care is tailored to their current medical and emotional needs.

Working as a TCS community RMN nurse, you’ll focus on building a strong professional relationship with the person you’re caring for. You’ll also be responsible for:  

  • Carrying out regular monitoring and assessing of our client’s physical and mental health
  • Creating, building and reviewing plans and interventions that proactively address challenges
  • Reducing the risk of harm occurring to the client and your nursing and support worker colleagues

Skills and qualities needed from TCS community mental health nurses

At TCS, we look for mental health nurses who are naturally passionate, attentive and dependable people. Our RMN nurses excel in delivering person-centred care to adults and children with complex mental health needs. Key skills and qualities our community mental health nurses should possess include:  


Collaboration is a key skill in any nursing role, especially in mental health community nursing at TCS. Good teamwork can provide better outcomes for the client and ensure consistency in their care. Collaboration can also support you in developing strong professional relationships with your nursing colleagues. 


Excellent communication  

Excellent communication is a core skill in mental health nursing. Due to the requirements of our TCS mental health clients, our RMN nurses need to be confident communicators to support their bespoke needs.  



Within a TCS mental health nursing job, things can change quickly, and you’re required to think on your feet in the moment. This is where observational skills are key to ensure the client, you and your colleagues remain safe during your shifts.  



Empathy is a key skill that TCS RMNs should utilise in their mental health nursing role daily. Empathetic nurses understand the client’s emotions, needs and circumstances on a personal level. They can demonstrate to the client they understand them and acknowledge their emotions.  



A TCS RMN nurse should demonstrate high levels of resilience in their mental health nursing role. Resilience enables nurses to manage difficult situations successfully and adapt to changing circumstances without letting their emotions be affected.
