Comment from our new CAMHS Ward Manager -
“As a new member of staff I was pleasantly surprised at the number of training opportunities there are for personal and professional development. We have a fantastic team with a proactive culture around learning lessons from incidents through reflecting and all working together! The young people we work with are amazing and having time to sit and actively work with them on things that are helpful to them (groups; one to one; working with families) makes a good job a rewarding one!”
