We offer specialist mental health treatment that can include the following: If you are under 18, consultation and treatment with a child and adolescent psychiatrist, If you are over 18, consultation and treatment with an adult consultant psychiatrist. We can offer you assessment and treatment from clinical psychologists and psychotherapists offering systemic family therapy, behavioural family therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), play therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). We offer care coordination and case management by registered mental health practitioners who are either mental health nurses, social workers or occupational therapists as well as support from unregistered assistant practitioners. We also have a clinician who works exclusively with looked after and adopted children (LAAC) and we have assistant psychologists who support us with research and audit. You can get help from our service by either referring yourself if you are over 14, or your parents or family can contact us on your behalf. Typically your GP would refer you, but we also accept referrals from other places that you might already have contact with such as schools or colleges. If you have other problems such as drug or alcohol misuse, we take referrals from these agencies also. Other oganisations working with children and young people can contact us directly to request a consultation and joint assessment if appropriate.
