Primary Mental Health Work Team

Primary Mental Health Work Team

The Primary Mental Health Work Team is part of the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, based in communities across Plymouth.

The team offer consultation which is needs led:

Triangular Consultation: Parent, Professional and Primary Mental Health Worker
This is a solution focused approach including an initial meeting followed by a 6 weekly review which uses goal based outcomes to monitor improvement.

Professional Consultation: Group or Individual
This is a solution focused approach which can be a useful tool when a professional is feeling unable to progress with a child and family. Consultation can also be used when considering a request for involvement to the service to ensure that the child presentation is within the criteria and so receives the right service. All members of the team offer consultation; we suggest that this is an important part of the professional’s decision-making process as to whether the presentation is an appropriate part of the request of involvement process.

The team also deliver triangle consultation.

Referrals are accepted from any professional working with families through Devon Referral Support Services.
