About our adolescent services

We are a national service and accept referrals from Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) teams and GPs.

Our adolescent service caters for a range of mental health difficulties, including;

  • Mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Psychosis
  • Eating disorders.

Aim and philosophy

The aim of the adolescent team is to form trusting relationships which can help young people and their families to build on existing strengths, and to develop new skills that may allow them to manage themselves and their feelings in a more appropriate way in the future.

Central to this belief is the concept of the therapeutic milieu. The therapeutic milieu is a structured, safe and supportive environment where staff engage not only with the distress and problems of the young person and their family, but also their strengths and assets.
