Internet safety from Islington CAMHS

Read more

Islington CAMHS spoke to young people to help them learn about internet safety and to find out what works well for them to keep safe online. The young people they spoke to gave them lots of tips and ways to keep safe online. Here’s a taste:

The internet is great for lots of reasons including …

  • Communication – such as interacting and talking to people.
  • Information – good for schoolwork, finding out updated information quickly and also having access to the news and maps.
  • Entertainment – streaming entertainment on websites such as YouTube and BBC iPlayer and also playing games.
  • Safety – young people told us they have used their phones to help them get out of tricky situations.

Top tips include:

  • Use a ‘phone jar’ – give yourself a target of how many times you go on your phone and if you go over, you have to put money in the phone jar.
  • Tell friends about the consequences of sharing information online, such as employers or prospective employers seeing posts and photos etc.
  • Don’t post when you’re upset /overly happy/ angry or in a different mood than usual.

 Creating A Living-Learning-Leisure Balance

Read more

The team works in partnership with each young person and their parents or carers to establish what treatment works best for them. They also encourage the young people to express themselves creatively and have established a successful arts programme. Young people also benefit from an on-site school and are encouraged to take part in a range of fun activities including cookery, IT and games, which not only enhances their treatment but also supports their rehabilitation by building confidence and developing social skills. The service also has access to the Woodland Retreat; an innovative on-site annexe for young people to use as a learning or leisure base.
