Psychiatry Registrar - - Accredited position Start August 2018

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

  • Located only 40 minutes from Sydney CBD
  • A rare NFP Accredited position starting in August 2018
  • Australia's National Youth Mental Health Foundation
The Opportunity
This is a rare opportunity to work in an Accredited Psychiatry role for a leading NFP in Sydney.

You will work to assist people living with mental health illness; family members or carers of people with mental illness; young people; those living in crisis; and vulnerable communities or groups. You will be specialising in early intervention mental health treatment to young people aged 12-25 years who are referred to the service.
You will actively participate in improvements of core tasks, with supporting evidence and will provide high quality care to achieve best outcomes for young people with a first episode of psychosis and their families.
Successful applicants will complete comprehensive assessments of patients presenting with early psychosis. You will assess patients in collaboration with other members of the multidisciplinary team, and there is a direct line of responsibility to the consultant at all times.
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 35 minute drive from Sydney Harbour and only minutes further to Sydney's eastern beaches.  
You will be situated by beautiful rivers and lakes, and in close proximity to a stunning national park in North-West Sydney; 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 only a little more than a city apartment. Low-maintenance apartment in a boutique block? Something with views? A fixer-upper? North-West Sydney has them all. If affordability, an active lifestyle, premier access to public facilities and infrastructure alongside a spectacular national park sound like your cup of tea, then this is the place you’ve been looking for.
