We are a single point of access for CAMHS/ISSU18 and Psychology.
Your first assessment is an opportunity for CAMHS to meet with you to gather more information on what help and support best suits you. This assessment is usually with one of our Primary Mental Health Workers.
If you are over 12 years old, we will ask you, if you would like your parent/carer to be with you in your appointments. We will meet with you and/or your family, we will listen and talk about your worries and difficulties. You might also have questions you would like to ask us.
After speaking with you and /or your family it might be more appropriate for you to get help from another service and advice will be given or referrals made, where possible.
By the end of your assessment a plan will be in place which has been agreed in partnership with the young person and family as to what next steps should be.
