An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated CPN to join our growing Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service in Redbridge. We are looking for practitioners who want an opportunity to not only make a difference to the children and families within our borough by providing high quality direct clinical work, but who are also willing to work with the team on service development initiatives, be part of reviewing the effectiveness of interventions and service models, and engage in working together to continue to be innovative and creative in the way we provide support to Children and Young People (CYP) and their families.

Redbridge CYP Mental Health Service has been part of a Local Transformation process, which has included the development of the Emotional Well Being Mental Health Service (EWMHS) and the adoption of the I-Thrive model to support children and young people. EWMHS focuses on emotional wellbeing as well as mental health and includes access to self-help tools and services based in schools and the community. We are creating a modern service that fits with children’s lives in a way that best suits them. Key new features include a Children’s Single Point of Access into the service, clear early signposting, and use of digital channels to access support and services. This is an on-going process of change and development and therefore provides a great opportunity for workers to take an active part in new service developments, building new service models and thinking creatively about how we can build our service to meet the needs of CYP in the best way.
