Are you a highly motivated, compassionate and dedicated mental health professional who is committed to providing high quality care to young people?

Do you believe in keeping young people and families at the heart of everything you do?

Would you like to work in a dynamic, creative and committed multi-disciplinary team?

The Child and Family Pathway in East and West Suffolk are looking for permanent practitioners working up to a 37.5 hour week in their community CAMHS teams based in Ipswich or Bury St Edmunds. These posts would be working with children aged up to 18 years and their families, where they are experiencing significant impairment and distress regarding their emotional health with a range of difficulties.

Whilst these posts would be based in and work with service users from our community CAMHS teams, you would also spend part of your time working in our ADHD service which provides assessment, pharmacological treatment, and behaviour management and monitoring of Children up to 18 years for this condition. It is an exciting time to join us as our ADHD service has recently received further investment and is looking to develop the provision of services offered across the county.

Whilst clinical experience is desirable in this area, we would also welcome applications from practitioners with a strong interest in working with young people and/or ADHD, and who wish to transfer into a new area of practice. We can support your development in our teams through training, mentorship and robust supervision.

You will be joining an enthusiastic and multi-disciplinary team and be/become an autonomous practitioner. Our clinicians work closely together and in our ADHD service have an interest in attachment, early child development, the circadian rhythm and neurodevelopmental development.

You will deliver high quality interventions through evidence based practice and be a valued part of the team. There is regular and robust supervision with an emphasis on reflective practice and development. There is a weekly Child and Family multi-disciplinary team meeting for reflection and clinical review.
The Child and Family Pathway also consists of specialist community services such as Learning Disability, ADHD, CONNECT. It has good links with our Primary Mental Health Worker Service.

It is an exciting time to join the service, as with all CAMHS teams we are undergoing transformation and development plans with other key agencies and development such as CYP-IAPT. We value multi-agency collaborative working and aspire to values from Future In Mind, such as service user participation and ensuring appropriate and evidence based services for the young people we see.
