The service for Child and Adolescent Mental Health is a specialised multi-disciplinary service for severe and complex child and adolescent mental health problems and neurodevelopmental disorders.
We aim to improve the mental health of all children and young people, from birth to their 18th birthday with the provision of a timely, integrated, high quality, effective, multi-disciplinary county wide service following the recommendations of the National Service Framework (NSF) for Children (Standard 9: Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services).
Our core purpose is to work with children and young people from the age of 0-18 years (to include transition to adult services under the Care Programme Approach (CPA) where applicable) and their families / carers who may be experiencing severe and/or complex mental health problems and neuro-developmental disorders that have a significant impact on the child’s development and cause distress to the child and / or their carers.
