How our service can help you
We work with children and young people with a range of moderate to severe mental health needs including anxiety, low mood, depression, self-harm, obsessive-compulsive disorders, psychosis and the effects of trauma.
We are a friendly multidisciplinary service that assesses them when their difficulties have become hard to manage and/or where there are concerns about their behaviour or emotional wellbeing. We offer a range of therapeutic interventions which focus on problems and thinking about things in a different way together.
Our approach is to work in an open, collaborative and supportive way with children, young people and their families who may be offered:
- Assessment and planned individualised treatment programmes for children and young people experiencing severe persistent mental health problems and disorders
- Assessment, treatment and support for children and young people with mild to moderate learning disabilities and/or complex health care needs and their families
- Family appointments to think about ways to resolve problems together
- Individual therapy for young people to help them understand their feelings better and find new ways of coping
- Medication may be prescribed by a child and adolescent psychiatrist
- Mental health assessment and support
- Working closely with, and offer support for, other professionals about how best to help individual children and young people

A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.
At Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, we value the often life-long support carers provide and recognise them as equal care partners. We want to offer as much guidance and reassurance as possible, to help you in your caring role. You can find general information and support for adult carers, young carers and parent carers by following this link.
