When you have had your first appointment, we may need more information to help us decide what we can do to support your child. This may mean speaking to teachers at school or other people who you know. We would always discuss this with you and your child first.
Sometimes we need to carry out further assessments and may ask your child to come and meet another member of the CAMHS team. Don’t worry if this happens, it just gives you and us a better understanding of what is happening.
When we have all the information we need, we will talk to you and your child about it and decide together whether we can help. If we decide CAMHS is the best service to help you, we will work together to start treatment or therapy.
