You will meet with one or more of the team in our assessment clinic, who will talk to you about the difficulties you have been having, what you would like to be different and how CAMHS might help.
Following the assessment clinic you will be allocated to a clinician in one of our care pathways, which one depends on the child or young person’s presenting difficulty.
Where appropriate we look at how we can use your family’s strengths, skills and abilities to help the situation. We will then discuss with you how we will work together with you on the problems you have identified and the goals you want to achieve.
Sometimes only a few meetings are needed and sometimes it takes longer. This will regularly be reviewed with you.
