Calderdale Mental Health Support Team (MHST)

– is seeking a representative workforce to work in schools and education settings.

We are recruiting a number of qualified and experienced clinicians to work for Northpoint Wellbeing in this innovative new Open Minds service.

The roles will involve supporting and supervising trainee Education Mental Health Practitioners who will provide low intensity mental health interventions to pupils and students in schools and colleges. The posts will also involve direct clinical and consultation work in schools.

Details of the vacancies can be found on NHS Jobs:

Closing date 12 July 2020:

Trainee roles will be advertised separately in August 2020.

Children and young people have told us they want to be supported by staff who can identify with them, who have empathetic skills, who listen, and who involve them in decisions about their care. Young people also felt the mental health workforce should be representative of the population of Calderdale in terms of ethnicity, disability, sexuality, and lived experience (i.e. service users or member of a vulnerable group).
