CAMHS Looked After Children
The CAMHS Looked After Children team is for children and young people aged 0 – 19 years who are looked after by the local authority. The Looked After Child pathway works in partnership with the local authority, and is co-located in Midland House with Plymouth Children’s Services and Children in Care Social Work teams.
It is a targeted team providing a range of multi-disciplinary skills to a vulnerable group of children and young people who may have emerging and enduring emotional and mental health problems due to the impact of the care they have received whilst with their birth families.
CAMHS Youth Offending
The CAMHS Youth Offending pathway sits with the Youth Offending Service within Plymouth City Council’s services for children and families. It is provided within the youth offending team to identify where there are mental health problems within this population of young people. It has been identified that this population is three times more likely to develop mental health problems requiring a CAMHS intervention.
