CAMHS professionals deal with a wide range of mental health problems. Many children and young people are troubled by emotional, behavioural and psychiatric problems. These can cause worry and distress both to themselves and to those who care for them. A large part of the CAMHS professionals’ work is to identify the problem, understand the causes and advise about what may help.

Our team has recently achieved Outstanding in the Caring domain from CQC, as a team we are very proud of this. We are seeking an individual who shares this commitment.

As an Occupational Therapist in CAMHS you will be working alongside children and their families to promote emotional wellbeing, occupational performance and provide interventions such as group therapy, individual support, sensory profiling and promoting independence.
