Read more about our child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS).

We have developed a new acute care pathway for children experiencing a crisis in their mental health. If a young person experiences a crisis we can respond in the right way, at the right time and with the right support.

That could mean keeping young people out of hospital and caring for them in the community, so they experience the least amount of disruption to their lives and the lives of their families; or if a young person is admitted to hospital we support them to be discharged in the safest and quickest way possible with the right resources in place in the community to prevent re-admission.

It is made up of 6 diverse teams offering different aspects of care and treatment. From our enhanced community crisis services which include rapid response teams and home based treatment teams; through to assessment based services which are our Greater Manchester assessment centre and paediatric liaison teams; through to our specialists services, inpatient CAMHS and community eating disorder teams.

When you join our acute care pathway services, we have many great training opportunities to continue to develop your career, including:

  • AMBIT (Adaptive Mentalization Based Integrative Treatment)
  • Social work and nurse apprenticeship
  • Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and DBT skills workshops
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for eating disorders
  • Mentalisation based therapy
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • STORM skills training (Suicide Prevention and Self-Harm Mitigation)
  • Family intervention Training
  • Improving access to psychological therapies​​​​​​​ skills-based training

Our services are designed to work flexibly around the needs of young people but also flexibility around you. This means there are opportunities to work across the pathway, helping you get a range of experience across different teams. 

Jobs in our paediatric liaison mental health team

This is a great opportunity to work with young people admitted to paediatric wards within our five boroughs (Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport and Tameside) who present with mental health needs or risks. We are looking for individuals passionate about working with children and young people, who can work innovatively across traditional boundaries and help young people get the right care, from the right team, at the right time and in the right place. Helping to improve outcomes and improve experiences for families of mental health support. We're seeking staff with a professional registration (nursing, social work, occupational therapy) to work in a multi-disciplinary team offering assessment, support, signposting, and intervention in this new and developing pathway.

 

Jobs in our our rapid response teams
