You’ll work within our Children and Young Persons (CYP) Service providing cognitive behavioural assessments and interventions, and work alongside other CBT therapists and psychological therapists. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a wider strategy to increase access to evidence-based interventions to children and young people exhibiting mental health difficulties in Brighton & Hove.

Brighton & Hove Wellbeing service is delivered by Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with YMCA DownsLink Group and Southdown. The CYP service works closely with Brighton CAMHS. We offer a variety of support and psychological therapies to children and young people within Brighton and Hove.

The CYP Service delivers a range of short-term therapeutic interventions to 2 to 24-year olds experiencing mild to moderate mental health difficulties. We work closely with CAMHS, the Schools Wellbeing Service and a range of other organisations.

You’ll join a team of CBT therapists and provide CBT to children and young people with a range of anxiety and low mood related difficulties; the therapy will be delivered via online and face-to-face appointments. Some flexibility to work from home and from service bases is required. You’ll have responsibility for triaging referrals, assessing mental health difficulties and delivering CBT to indicated, evidence based national guidelines.

You’ll liaise with children and young people, their parents, families, carers and/or additional supporting professionals to ensure effective and practical support. You will need to work with people with different cultural backgrounds and ages, using interpreters when necessary and should be committed to equal opportunities.
