|Summary of services||When someone is referred to us, we will meet with them to find out what their mental health needs are. If we feel someone can benefit more from another service, we can help them get in touch with that service. If we feel we can help someone, we will discuss different kinds of treatment and support with the young person and their family. |
We can help someone using different kinds of therapies, and we can help someone using medication. Therapies include talking-based therapy, creative therapy, and family therapy. We are very aware that children and young people are still developing, and so we encourage positive childhood development as part of our support.
