What you can expect
Anyone who uses our services first gets an assessment of their mental health needs and a plan of the care and support they will receive. They will also have one named person who will be the main point of contact regarding their care and support from the Tier 3 service. This person will be called a named professional. You can speak to them about how your treatment and support are going.
We welcome feedback regarding the service we provide as this enable us to improve and develop the service to young people with mental health difficulties and their families.
The service is accessed via the local authority SPA by phone or by using the online referral form.
Anyone who has concerns about a child can call the SPA, and if there is a mental health or emotional well-being concern this will be screened by a CAMHS clinician and signposted to the most relevant service.
