Self Harm

We received a call from a GP saying that he had a 15 year old girl in surgery and he was concerned about the self-harm to her arms and upper legs. Sarah was saying she was depressed and feeling suicidal. Read Sarah’s story below.

Self Harm

When young people inflict pain on themselves it is usually a way of telling us that something is wrong, and can often be linked to depression and anxiety. The majority of children and young people who self harm have no intention of ending their lives. Self harm includes things like cutting, scratching, hair pulling, bruising, over-dosing, poisoning, and burning. It can be very difficult for family and friends to understand that these behaviours are often a way for releasing difficult emotions…

Weight Management

Public Health Nursing Teams are able to support you with monitoring your child’s growth, this includes maintaining a healthy weight.

Family Therapy

Family therapy works by looking at the family as a system that includes all family members. A problem in the family can be solved by family members as they are helped to see things from one another’s point of view.

Anxiety

Sally, 16 years old, was referred to CAMHS by her GP for low mood and anxiety. She had self-harmed by cutting but was not having any suicidal thoughts. Read below what we did for Sally, as told by her cognitive behavioural therapist.

Depression

Craig, a 17 year old male, was referred to us by his GP as he was struggling at college and feeling very low and depressed. Read Craig’s story below.
