We treat children and young people between the ages of 2 and 18 years old with a range of emotional, behavioural and learning difficulties.
Every young person is a unique individual and our aim is to help young people overcome their difficulties. These are the kind of conditions we can assess and work with:
For some conditions, particularly global learning difficulties and severe ASD, we may recommend referral to specialist centres who are able to provide the necessary more intensive interventions. However, we can still see the young person and his/her family to address additional mental health needs and to offer support and advice.
The terms mild, moderate and severe are used in this information to describe different levels of mental health problems.
A mild mental health problem is when a person has a small number of symptoms that have a limited effect on their daily life.
A moderate mental health problem is when a person has more symptoms that can make their daily life much more difficult than usual.
A severe mental health problem is when a person has many symptoms that can make their daily life extremely difficult.
A person may experience different levels at different times.
During our initial consultation, our duty clinician takes a deep look into your concerns and your child or adult’s behaviour to determine if there are any underlying mental health difficulties.
