What is Fresh CAMHS?
Fresh CAMHS is our community based mental health service in Liverpool for children and young people up to 18 years of age and their families who are struggling with how they are feeling, thinking or the way they are doing things.
We especially help those whose difficulties are getting in the way of being able to manage everyday life and relationships. Once assessed, referrals are directed to the most suitable part of the service, where there will be access to a highly skilled multi-disciplinary team trained in various therapies and approaches.
What do we do?
Fresh CAMHS offers a range of therapies and interventions to help children and young people who are struggling with their mental health. We work particularly with those children and young people whose difficulties mean that they are struggling to manage everyday life and relationships and whose safety might be a worry to them or those around them.
We work with a range of difficulties, from issues requiring just a few sessions up to complex mental health difficulties requiring intervention from a multi-disciplinary team. Fresh CAMHS is organized into five teams, each working with a range of child and adolescent mental health difficulties, but each also with expertise in working with vulnerable or specific groups:
- 16 to 18-year-olds
- 0 to 5-year-olds
- Youth Offenders
- Looked After Children
- Children with Learning Disabilities
Fresh CAMHS works hard to understand what might be going on for a young person and find the best way to help. We also have key workers in every secondary school in Liverpool, so that young people can begin to access a service from us very quickly.
