First Steps is an NHS Psychology Service, for children and young people aged 0-18 and their families. We aim to help with difficulties relating to behaviour, emotions and relationships and try to tackle issues early on, before they become severe or too difficult to manage. We are part of City & Hackney CAMHS and work in partnership with our colleagues.
Our team is made up of over 25 Family & Child Practitioners, including Clinical Psychologists, Mental health nurses, Assistant Psychologists and Administrators.
We are a Community Psychology Team and are based within Children’s Centres and GP surgeries across Hackney and try to ensure that our support is as local and convenient for families as possible.
