Therapists in CAMHS have different professional backgrounds. They might have been nurses, social workers, teachers or counsellors. They help families to understand more than one side of a problem. They will talk to you and help you find ways of coping with the problems you are having. They offer evidence based therapies to help you and your family to understand why you feel the way you do and to work through those thoughts and feelings and what may be behind them to allow you to recover and get back on track. Evidence based therapies are ways of helping that have been tested to make sure they help with the problems that affect you.
There are lots of different types of therapists. In our team we have family and cognitive behaviourist therapists.
