Overview

An opportunity has arisen to work in a CQC ‘Outstanding’ Children and Young People’s (CYP) IAPT Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, covering Derby City and South Derbyshire.

The post holder will work in the CAMHS Early Access Pathway, specifically the Assessment and Short Term Intervention Specialist Team.

A.S.I.S.T offers initial assessment and brief intervention to children and young people presenting with mental health difficulties, with the aim of preventing long term stays within service.

The post holder would be expected to contribute to the initial assessment clinics, offer one-to-one intervention for up to 8 sessions, carry a caseload and offer care co-ordination where needed, facilitate group interventions and work alongside the wider CAMHS service.

As a CYP IAPT Service, we endeavour to offer an accessible, evidence-based service to children and young people, that delivers the right intervention at the right time.

We use Routine Outcome Measures to evidence what we do and influence our practice.

We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic individual, with post-registration experience, this would normally equate to 2 years, to join our multi-disciplinary team.

The vacancy is a full time post.

Our service offers extended hours between the days of Monday-Friday, 8.00am-8.00pm, which the post holder would be expected to contribute to.

We offer flexible working hours to meet the needs of the service.
