Getting More Help
What support is available?
The Getting More Help Service at CAMHS offer support to young people with moderate or severe mental health conditions.
This includes the following presenting difficulties:
- Anxiety disorders
- Depression and mood dysregulation
- Post traumatic stress disorder
- Self harm (alongside other mental health difficulties)
- Bipolar disorder
- Somatic symptom disorder and functional neurological disorders
Who can we help?
We will consider whether it is most helpful to work directly with the child or young person, but may also offer support to their family or carers, or other professionals who know the young person.
If you are referred to CAMHS you will have a specialist assessment and may then be offered a range of talking therapies and medication (if appropriate).
Many of the talking therapies focus on setting goals and reflecting on the present day including things that are affecting you in your life now.
We offer evidence-based interventions appropriate to the presenting difficulties. These include:
- Cognitive-behavioural therapy
- Systemic family therapy
- Interpersonal psychotherapy
- Dialectical behaviour therapy skills
- Care co-ordination
