An exciting opportunity has arisen to apply for a fixed term temporary Mental Health Practitioner post, attached to the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), and based with the  Local Authority hosted ADTRAC  teams.                                                                                                         

ADTRAC is a European Social Funded project for young people aged 16 – 24 years who are not in employment education or training.  The post holder will play a key role in the development and delivery of the new project working alongside partners and supporting young people to promote emotional health and wellbeing.

The Mental Health Practitioner will receive requests for support from ADTRAC staff for young people at risk of developing mental health difficulties. The post holder will provide advice and guidance, signposting, and some short term direct interventions to young people in addition to supporting and training ADTRAC staff in early intervention and prevention strategies. 

The post holder will contribute to the development of care pathways and protocols, linking closely with CAMHS and with Adult Mental Health. The project will be evaluated and this information will be used to shape the service going forward. 

This is a new post open to health professionals with experience in working with young adults with emotional distress and at risk of developing mental health disorder. A sound knowledge of child and adolescent development and mental health disorders and strategies for supporting emotional wellbeing and building resilience are central to this role. The ability to engage effectively and quickly with young people and professionals to provide compassionate evidence based and timely care is the shared goal. 

We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates with previous experience of working in mental health services. The post holder will receive both clinical and managerial supervision and will work in partnership with the ADTRAC Teams, the regional ADTRAC Project Steering Group, and local CAMHS team who are a welcoming, supportive and innovative team.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
