Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Please do not contact the Single Point of Access Team regarding COVID19.

Before contacting the Single Point of Access Team, we recommend that you watch the short videos and look over our self-help guides provided here.

This is because we recognise that often in the first instance you, as parent / carer are the best placed person to support the young person’s needs by starting the process of change.

We are keen to support you to implement these strategies and so provide a telephone advice line that you are welcome to call.

We recognise that there could be disruptions to Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services in Oxfordshire as a result of the impact COVID-19 has had.

In anticipation we want to reassure you that we are doing all we can to minimise disruption that may be caused by COVID-19.
