About the ServiceYoung people across West Yorkshire benefit from a new enhanced mental health service delivered in a modern purpose-built facility- could you be part of our team?

Red Kite View is the name we've chosen, with the help of young people, for this brand new, £20million young people's mental health inpatient hospital. We are recruiting for a new team to deliver children and young people's mental health services (CYPMHS) - a term for all services that work with children and young people who have difficulties with their mental health or wellbeing. These services are also known as children and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS).

The service is part of Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and is based in Armley, less than 3 miles from Leeds City Centre. It provides inpatient care and support to families and young people from across West Yorkshire. It marks the start of an exciting new chapter in the provision of NHS services to young people living with mental health needs and their families. Red Kite View will allow you to work in a spacious, therapeutic environment that has been designed in consultation with staff and young people using the current services.

The service opened in December 2021 and offers a welcoming, therapeutic environment to support young people aged from 13 up to 18 years of age who need the support of an inpatient service in their journey to recovery.
