This service is for people who live in:
The Croydon CAMHS Getting Help Team provides a safe, effective, responsive service where staff involve and treat children, young people and their families with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect.

Our service is for children, young people and their families that have had an initial assessment, and require further help.

During the assessment with the Getting Advice Team, the care pathway and treatment plan will be agreed with the family and recorded.  If we feel that further help is needed after assessment, we will add the young person to the treatment waiting list for the Getting Help Team.

Treatment with us ranges from short to long term, and may involve face to face sessions, and indirect work with the parent, carer or professional from another agency.  We may also refer you to another agency, specialist service, help you with access to another CAMHS service, or mental health promotion and mental health education service if needed.

We will always keep young person, their family, GP and the referrer informed of the outcome of the assessment, treatment and care plan. A closing summary will also be sent to all parties at the end of the spell of care.

Our team members
Our service is made up of a number of professionals from different backgrounds who work together to provide multi-disciplinary care. This may include psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, clinical specialists, systemic family therapists, CAMHS practitioners, assistant psychologists, trainees and administrators.
