The Single Point of Access team meet regularly with professionals from local Early Help teams to talk about how we can work together to help young people and their families. We are looking for opportunities to work with other professionals and teams in the same way.
We know that young people are still waiting too long to access support from us. We are working hard to make this better:
We have brought in a new Assessment Team to ensure that young people who need a mental health assessment can have one within 28 days of asking for help.
We are bringing in a Brief Interventions Team with structured plans to bring down the waiting time for an intervention
Our Eating Disorders team have lots of new staff to help bring down the waiting list and to start to run groups for families to support young people at home
Our Crisis team now run from 9 am to midnight every day to support young people in crisis outside of working hours
We will write a blog on these when we have some more data to share.
Thank you for taking the time to read our update.
We value your thoughts – contact us if you have any questions.
