Summary

A need for comprehensive services for young people requiring more intensive mental health services has been identified and this book explores what works in Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) at this level.

Specialist Mental Healthcare for Children and Adolescents looks at intensive outpatient and community services; assertive outreach teams; inpatient residential and secure provision; and other highly specialised assessment, consultation and intervention services. Based on the best available evidence, each chapter provides key points, research summaries and an overview of available treatments. It outlines emerging good practice guidance, service models, assessment, and training and workforce development requirements.

This accessible text is essential reading for commissioners and professionals – including psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, therapists, social workers and teachers – working in specialist CAMHS services, as well as all those studying for qualifications in child and adolescent mental health.
