If you are someone who is keen to work in mental health and looking to make a real difference then working within our adolescent inpatient team may be for you.  Working with adolescents who require a period of time in a more structured setting where you will be part of a supportive multi-disciplinary (MDT) brings many challenges but also a real sense of achievement. 

Forest House is a general acute inpatient and day patient psychiatric unit for young people between 13 and 17 years of age. At Forest House we provide care to young people and their families/carers who experience a variety of mental health difficulties and who may require more intense treatment which cannot be provided in their own home.  There are 16 beds at Forest House and these are for female, male and non-binary gender young people.

It is an exciting time for inpatient services as since July 2021 HPFT have been part of the wider Eastern Region Collaborative for Children & Young People working together with partners from other mental health providers on New Models of Care (NCM) to provide a more individualised care offer. 

We have a range of roles available including both qualified and non-qualified positions.  As an organisation we offer a range of training opportunities and would welcome  staff who have prior experience of working with young people. Perhaps in different settings, who feel they have transferable skills they could share. 

We’d love you to join us!  Please look at the jobs on this page and apply if you think you too can provide excellent care to support young people.
