The Response Counselling Service is launching a new partnership with CAMHS to help young people to access mental health and wellbeing services. This will be a pilot project between Response and CAMHS, and the first phase will commence on 8th July 2016.
From the 8th July, Response will be taking new referrals into its counselling service. This will be for young people aged 13 to 18 years old. Young people can be referred direct to Response, with their consent. Please contact the service to find out how to make a referral.
All young people who consent to a referral will be contacted by the counselling team to discuss the most suitable service available to them. If Response is the most suitable service, young people will be offered 6-8 counselling sessions when the next counsellor is available.
As part of this pilot, Response will work in partnership with CAMHS to ensure that young people are on one combined waiting list for the most appropriate service, depending on their level of need.
