As a member of the Integrated Mental Health Team (IMHT), you will provide flexible, responsive, proactive assessment, care, group interventions and management to individuals experiencing early signs of relapse, new acute phase mental illness, distress, or posing a risk in terms of self-harm.

HMP YOI Doncaster is a category B mens prison located in the Marshgate are of Doncaster, support on average 1145 inmates.
