"CAMHS keeps me out of trouble"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services – Community(County)

(as the patient),

Ive had lots of bad stuff go on in my life. It got me down a bit. Having someone to talk to has helped. I have a youth offending team worker and a CAMHS Head2Head worker. They visit me at home and spend some time with me. We talk about my problems and they give me advice. This helps with how I am feeling and keeps me out of trouble.

Having someone come to see me at home helps as I can be seen in a place I feel comfortable and in private.
