Consultant Psychiatrist - Child and Adolescent / General Adult

Join a leading Not-For-Profit Youth organisation and take on a rewarding new career helping vulnerable communities and their Youth.

  • Australia's National Youth Mental Health Foundation
  • Fixed Term contract to June 2018 (with a view to extend)
  • 3 days a week, flexible on days
The Opportunity
 
You will hold a key leadership position within the team and will be responsible for the provision of clinical leadership, training and supervision of medical staff, specialising in early intervention mental health treatment to young people aged 12-25 years who are referred to the service.
 
You will contribute to the development of an innovative service that will provide high quality care to achieve best outcomes for young people with a first episode of psychosis and their families.
 
Successful applicants will know how to work collaboratively with a range of Mental Health Clinicians across the service to promote comprehensive evidence-based psychiatric care that is youth friendly, safe, effective, and of a high standard.
 
The Organisation
 
This service is Australia’s National Youth Mental Health Foundation. It aims to reduce the burden of disease in young people aged 12-25 years caused by mental health and related substance use disorders through early identification and effective, evidence-based intervention.
 
Services are delivered by primary care and specialist providers working together within a unified, accessible and integrated service framework.
 
The service provides young people with support and information for a broad range of concerns, including mental health, physical/sexual health, alcohol and other drugs, education and vocational assistance and support for families and carers.
 
The Location
 
Sydney, one of Australia's most beautiful and liveable cities, offers an attractive lifestyle for family members of all ages. Located just a 50 minute drive from Sydney Harbour and only minutes further to Sydney's eastern beaches. 
 
Beautiful rivers and lakes, and a short drive to a stunning national park; enthusiastically filled with the perfect array of facilities: a sports stadium, shopping centres, a museum and performing arts complex, plus only a 40 minute drive into the Blue Mountains.
 
Affordability is a big drawcard for this area where a freestanding house costs less than a city apartment. Low-maintenance apartment? A fixer-upper? Western Sydney has them all. If affordability, an active lifestyle, premier access to public facilities and infrastructure as well as a multicultural environment sound like your cup of tea, then this is the place you’ve been looking for.
