Consultant Psychiatrist – Child and Adolescent

Website NZDr

The New Zealand specialist medical recruitment agency.

This collegially supportive and well run DHB has a tendency to fly under the radar, as they simply get on with the job of providing their patients the best care with the minimum of fuss, and the Mental Health & Addictions Service is no exception. They may be small in size, but not unlike NZ generally, they to punch above their weight in performance measures, and hold a solid reputation across our community who values our services.

This Centre is the community based mental health service for children and young people within a large city. The Centre provides a variety of services and pathways for young people and their families/whanau, utilising multiple models and evidence based therapies adapted to the individual needs of the young person and their family to assist them towards recovery. We currently have a vacancy in the community team. This team offers a range of treatments options including individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, case management and psycho-pharmacology. There is also an opportunity to work with children with neurodevelopmental needs as part of this role.

Continue to thrive professionally as you provide clinical expertise and share knowledge about young people’s mental health.
