Responding to child and adolescent mental health needs can be conceptualised at different levels, ranging from early intervention and health promotion programmes, to primary and community care services and specialist mental health services for the treatment of complex disorders. There is a multi-disciplinary team approach which encompasses early intervention through to adolescent’s education and training programmes in line with best international practice. The model is recovery focused with significant links with primary /community care services to ensure a co-ordinated service provision for child and adolescent mental health problems. The service offers significant support to those who present with mental health disorders and the supports given at the right time can have a life long positive impact in supporting child and adolescents with mental health disorders.
