CAMHS Practitioner

Hours: 37.5 hours per week
Base: Burton/Tamworth
Contract: 12 months temporary

It’s an exciting, but challenging time for mental health services for young people in South Staffordshire. We are receiving investment in services to expand provision and have a programme of modernisation in process to provide better, more integrated care along with partners.

We are launching a number of new developments due to investment opportunities across both our core CAMHS and our specialist CAMHS provision.

We are delighted that investment in our core CAMHS provision has enabled us to offer an opportunity for two CAMHS Practitioners to join our CAMHS Teams based in Burton & Tamworth, to support the needs of our children, young people and families.

The successful candidates will deliver a high quality, comprehensive mental health service for children and young people with serious and enduring mental health difficulties. The role involves managing a defined caseload with a focus on working with children and young people and their families who experience a complex range of needs and difficulties. Acting as a key member of the multi-disciplinary team, the post holder will provide assessment, psychosocial, evidence-based interventions using a collaborative approach and will be skilled at risk assessment and management. They will complement the multi-disciplinary working of the team, providing supervision for other team members, as agreed with the Operational Manager.
They will participate in team and service development and evaluation. Liaison, advice and consultation with a wide range of agencies is central to the role.
