Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (Department of Health - Tasmania)

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) in Tasmania, Australia is experiencing a 'once in a generation' investment and expansion to deliver to world class innovative mental health care to our children and young people.

We believe that all children and adolescents, whatever their background and circumstances, deserve to negotiate the developmental tasks of childhood and adolescents with optimal mental health and grow into healthy  adults. We are especially committed to enhancing the mental health of our state's most vulnerable children and young people.

As a service we strive to remove barriers to service access and redefine what is possible in consumer-focused mental health care.    

Child and adolescent mental health is a major priority for the Tasmanian Government, who are committed to action through the Tasmanian Mental Service Reforms, with a raft of new initiatives in motion to change the shape and improve mental health service delivery in our State.  

At CAMHS we are committed to workplace inclusion and we value people bringing diverse backgrounds, perspective and experiences to our organisation.

The beautiful Island State of Tasmania offers an unparalleled lifestyle with its mild climate, some of the cleanest air in the world, pristine nature, abundant wildlife, wealth of sporting and adventure activities, dynamic arts and culture, and a relaxed way of life. 

We provide a generous and comprehensive re-location service so that your transition to Tasmania is as seamless as possible. We welcome the cross-pollination of skills and experience brought be staff joining us from interstate or overseas.
