The Neurodevelopmental Conditions (NDC) Pathway is part of the integrated CAMH service for children and young people aged 5-18 and their families / carers.
The function of the NDC pathway is to ensure that presentation of the emotional and mental health needs of children and young people with suspected or identified neurodevelopmental conditions such as autism and ADHD are appropriately met, with the aim of increasing resilience and ability to manage these long term conditions, and reducing the likelihood of long-term mental health problems.
The service is delivered by a multi-disciplinary team who are able to deliver a range of evidence-based therapeutic interventions.
The Senior Mental Health Practitioner is an exciting role within the multidisciplinary team, which includes being part of the multidisciplinary diagnostic assessment, deliver groups, and undertake care co-ordination for complex neurodevelopmental cases.
A significant part of the role includes providing duty cover to our busy service, as well as using specific professional skills to support the wider multidisciplinary team in our treatment pathway.
We are looking for an individual who is shares our passion for patient care in this population, and who is willing to be flexible and creative to meet current needs.
The team has a well established induction and training package, which enables clinicians with the right core skills to adapt to this specialist field.
