About Chalkhill Hospital

Chalkhill is Sussex’s only mental health inpatient unit for young people, supporting over 8,750 children and adolescents each year.

The unit provides day care, outreach, and – where absolutely necessary and appropriate – inpatient services for young people with a range of mental health needs. These include eating disorders, emotional based needs, depression and early-onset psychosis.

Your unique experience and career background could bring exactly what we need to our team, but most importantly the lives of our children and young people. Please think about sharing your expertise with us - we already know that working with children and young people is rewarding, challenging, inspiring and life changing and we'd love you to experience that too.
