My story

These are some of the things that parents and carers have said about our outpatient service.


  • You listened well and explained everything step by step.  You answered all our questions and we never felt judged.CAMHS artwork
  • It was great having someone to talk to and listen to me.  Fiona was lovely and very easy to talk to.  Everything I said was taken seriously and I feel better about my situation now
  • Noreen really listened to us and our child.  She was very friendly, putting our child at ease quickly.  She had a good knowledge of the process of CAMHS.  We look forward to the next part of the process.
  • You provided a relaxed open environment which allowed me to share my concerns and experiences without fear of being judged.  Andy provided a range of useful strategies which we can implement as parents.
