Case Manager - ICAMHS

Infant Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service (ICAMHS) – Kensington Centre

Permanent, Full Time, 40 Hours a week, Weekday Office Hours


Every moment matters is not only our vision, it is our commitment to enhance the health and independence of the people of South Canterbury. We do things differently at the SCDHB, we believe extraordinary leadership can emerge from anywhere in our workforce, and the best ideas tend to come from staff closest to our patients and our patients themselves.

We are looking for a NZ registered Health Professional (i.e. a Nurse, Social Worker or Occupational Therapist) to join our multi-disciplinary team in supporting 0 - 18 year olds who have a diagnosis or suspected diagnosis of moderate to severe psychiatric disorder. Some of the tasks include, but not restricted to, assessment and treatment planning, providing specialist therapy, and liaison with families and the wider environment.

If you are eager to secure a full time position that doesn’t involve shift or weekend work (just Monday to Friday business hours), then this job is for you.

Are you someone with a proven background in:

  • Comprehensive Assessment of Infants Children and Adolescents
  • Sound Risk Management, with Intervention Skills reflective of evidence based practice
  • Maintaining extensive (paper based) Documentation
  • Communicating effectively with a wide variety of clients & families/Whanau
  • Case Management
  • Teamwork, as someone who can think on their feet, actively participating in problem solving, leadership and professional development.
  • The ‘Strengths Model’ as a framework of care and the client/family led collaborative approach to recovery.
