Job Description:

Youth Mental Health Hospital in the Home

Do you want to make a difference in the lives of young people and their families? Would you like to work in a dynamic multidisciplinary team, providing intensive mental health care within a young person’s home? Then come join our new Youth Mental Health Hospital in the Home (Y-HiTH) service!

The CAMHS Y-HiTH is a new service for the North West region, based in Devonport.

Our aim is to support young people (16–24-year-old) who maybe experiencing an acute episode of mental illness to receive treatment in their home and within the community, rather than being admitted to an inpatient mental health unit, or as part of a discharge plan from hospital.

The Y-HiTH team will work with the young person and their family/significant others to develop an individual treatment plan that supports their recovery. With multiple home visits occurring everyday and additional support via telephone and telehealth, young people will receive comparable treatment from Y-HiTH as they would from an inpatient admission.
