NHSG CAMHS Early Intervention Team
The early intervention team at CAMHS (NHS Grampian) have been working hard to create resources to help children, young people and families. We would like to direct families and young people to the new psychological resilience hub (https://covid19.nhsgrampian.org/pages/for-the-public/mental-health-covid-19/how-do-you-self-refer-to-the-psychological-response-hub/). This is a new service that anyone can self-refer to from 0-100 years for support and advice, and we have a specific self-referral pathway for children and young people. This can be done by the young person themselves if they are 14 years and over or by their parent. Attached is an infographic that explains this new service.
In addition, we have created resource packs for pupils and their parents that provide information and strategies to help with worry and anxiety related to coronavirus (these are attached).
CAMHS has also created a podcast called “Keep CAMHS and Carry On” that has multiple episodes, each with a useful tip or strategy from a member of our CAMHS team. This can be accessed via our website https://www.camhsgrampian.org/podcast and we would encourage you all to subscribe as there are new episodes coming out all the time.
