Children's mental health issues (July 2009)

GP Masterclass mock front image

This Masterclass described the CAMHS services in the three boroughs and informed GPs about how these fit alongside other voluntary and statutory services available to support families.

There was an opportunity for GPs to raise issues in relation to the service.  In addition, the presentations from the CAMHS family therapists described interventions that are appropriate for families when children present with challenging behaviour, for example Parenting Work for pre-pubertal children, and also a recently developed intervention specifically for adolescents presenting with challenging behaviour.
