If you are offered an appointment with our Community Team or a specialist service we might need to meet with you at the local clinic or your school in order to find out what you think is going on and what you think might help you to make things better.
We have a flexible approach to appointments and are happy to meet you on your own, or with your family or friends. We would normally speak with your parents if they come to the appointment with you.
At your first appointment you will meet someone from our team who will talk to you to find out about your worries and what has been difficult for you and help you think about what you want to achieve and the type of help you feel would benefit you.
Here are some of the professionals you might meet:
- Clinical Psychologist
- Mental Health Nurse
- Community Wellbeing Practitioner
- Volunteer Mentor
- Family Therapist
- Primary Mental Health Worker
- Neurodevelopmental Community Therapist
They are friendly and helpful and will do everything they can to make sure you are happy with us.
During any treatment we may ask you to complete a form called a Routine Outcome Measure to help us keep track of how things are going for you. You can read more about these forms.
