The treatment plan is individually designed according to the individual needs of the child and family.
Treatment plans are developed in collaboration with the young person and their carers, and are periodically reviewed.
Community-based services, including Tier 3, need to have the resources with which to ensure that young people being discharged, in particular looked after young people who may require a new placement, are given due priority for any ongoing support and treatment required.

The Very Cool CAMHSweb
This online platform includes a number of tools to help young people and their therapist explore their strengths, feelings and relationships, and work on personal goals.
Dr Jessica Austin, Lead Clinical Psychologist with the West Norfolk Family and Young Person’s Service, said: “This exciting project will make a huge difference to the recovery of many young people across West Norfolk, and we are delighted to be taking part in the pilot.
“CAMHSweb is a fantastic tool which helps young people feel more in control of their mental health care.
“It gives them the chance to personalise their treatment and express their thoughts in a variety of different ways. For example, they can doodle their goals and create avatars of the people in their lives, then, using one of the tools they can place them on a target showing how close and how supportive they are to the individual’s recovery.
“It is a very graphical and creative way of helping young people.”
