A specialist Lancashire mental health organisation is now looking for a Clinical Psychologist to join them at their independent CAMHS unit in Accrington, supporting young people aged 13-19 years with complex social, emotional and mental health needs and who may have a history of trauma.

Based primarily around the Dialectical Behaviour Therapy model of care, the MDT implements tailored programmes of therapeutic rehabilitation and support across two 10-bed units purpose-built to offer both the optimum level of safety and a private, comfortable living environment conducive to recovery.

Through psychiatric assessment and stabilisation, rehabilitation, and step-down services, vulnerable young people are supported through times of crisis and to make a smooth transition to more community-based care. Plans are in the works to expand for solo placements and semi-independent flats as well.

As a Clinical Psychologist, you will deliver effective, person-centred talking therapies under the supervision of a Senior Clinical Psychologist and support holistic rehabilitation as part of a strong MDT; helping young people to understand and manage their emotions, better cope with unexpected challenges, and make real and lasting improvements in their mental health.

This is a permanent, ideally full-time (37.5h) role for a CAMHS Clinical Psychologist, covering office hours, Mon-Fri. Some flexibility is available for part-time hours, requiring a minimum of 3 days per week.

  • (Essential) Registration with the HCPC as a Clinical Psychologist.
  • (Essential) Membership of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
  • (Essential) Previous professional experience within a CAMHS setting.
  • (Desirable) Previous experience delivering Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).
