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.”

There are a wide variety of groups

“There are a wide variety of groups to attend which all young people are encouraged to actively take part in if they can. These tend to be of an active nature, rather than passive or interpretative. We don’t want anyone to miss the opportunity to take part in therapeutic activities but some find it difficult to manage a group setting, so there is often more than one group facilitator, allowing them to be supported in taking part. And if they need to leave for a while one of the facilitators can check to make sure they’re okay.”

Young people co-write care plans

Read more

“One of our aims is to empower young people by providing them with a safe environment to face their difficulties. Young people co-write care plans give them opportunity to express in their own words what’s going on for them and what their goals are. Staff help them evaluate their problems and setbacks and to learn from them. They have a variety of care plans throughout their admission as their needs are likely to change.”
