Community Service - Cardiff & Vale

Services:

Cardiff & Vale CAMHS Team is a multi-disciplinary mental health service for children and young people up to their 18th birthday. The Team comprises Consultants in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Speciality Doctors, Community Mental Health Nurses, Health Care Support Workers, Psychologists and a Psychotherapist.

The Team offers help at the secondary level of referral ie. moderate to severe mental health problems in children, adolescents and their families which cannot be resolved solely with the help of primary services. The Service aims to provide a range of evidence based interventions for children and young people and their families.

The development of links with the young person's family and environment are very important elements in the work. A range of interventions are provided including individual, family and group run sessions and consultations with referring professionals.

The number of specific services provided by CAMHS includes the Drug and Alcohol Misuse Service. The service also provides support to primary care professionals working with children and families through our primary mental health team. If you would like more information please contact Paul Mason or Debbie Savery.
