Summary:
Southwark CAMHS Outreach Teamis part of Southwark Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). We are a specialist team for adolescents in Southwark between the ages of 13 to 18 years. Our aim is to reduce the number of times young people in crisis visit A&E, and to provide help before they experience a crisis that might lead to an A&E visit, or hospital admission.

We work with young people that have severe, persistent and complex needs that affect their daily life.We aim to intervene and support young people and their families before they reach a crisis point.

Our team works in partnership with a young person’s CAMHS team to provide timely interventions. We can help to engage with young people that may previously have been hard to reach by providing intensive support in the community.

Stepped care
Our team uses a stepped care model. Stepped care means that the level of help provided depends on how severe a young person’s issues are.

If a young person’s symptoms get worse, we will offer them additional help; this is called ‘stepping up’. As things improve we will see whether it’s appropriate to ‘step down’. This means that we will offer lower intensity treatment such as workshops, groups, and guided self-help.
