At your assessment, we will usually see you with your parents/carers or by yourself. If you are under 16, it’s helpful for your family or carers to be involved in your Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) journey. There will always be an opportunity for you to speak to your CAMHS worker on your own at your appointment. If you are aged over 16, you can talk to your CAMHS worker about who you would like to come to appointments with you. It can be helpful to have family members/carers involved so that they can share their thoughts about what might be going on, as well as being able to support you with any changes you might want to make.
