We provide help and support to children and young people when they begin to feel emotionally or mentally unwell to build wellbeing and resilience to reduce the chances of their condition becoming more serious.
Together with our partners we deliver targeted and specialist services, connecting with universal services to ensure support is available at entry level, from primary mental health in schools through to urgent needs.
Our partnership provides this support at all levels of need in a number of ways, including prevention and early intervention services that build wellbeing and resilience, increase quality of life and develop lifelong skills to support good mental health in our young people.
Our primary mental health practitioners, psychiatrists (doctors), psychologists, CAMHS social workers, art therapists, psychotherapists, nurses, family therapists, psychological wellbeing therapists and youth workers provide a wide range of mental health services for children and young people including Targeted Services which help vulnerable groups such as children in care and those experiencing sexual trauma.
Specialist and Crisis Support Services address complex needs using a wide range of evidence-based interventions and responsive support for children, young people and families.
Our extended hours provide greater access outside of school, college and office hours, operating between 8am-8pm Monday to Friday and 9am-12pm on Saturdays. Our services are also more accessible through convenient locations and online.
