• Attachment disorders
• Those struggling with the effects of major negative life events
• *Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder/ attention deficit disorder combined with mental health problems such as anxiety or low mood

*service users must have a moderate to severe mental health problem in line with our criteria.
We see you with your family and we involve your parents and carers in planning your treatment.
Where your family need additional support we work closely with professionals from other agencies, such as Children's Services, to help organise this.
We provide information about other voluntary organisations who work with young people with particular difficulties, such as autistic spectrum disorders.

· Moderate to severe mental health difficulties across three domains (severe issues in one domain alone or moderate issues in two or more). Impact on these domains can vary depending on an individual's stage of development or context:
We work collaboratively with young people and their families /carers in developing and working towards treatment goals. Their level of motivation is balanced against level of severity so individuals with high levels of need can still receive a service even if their motivation levels are limited.
We also take into consideration previous and current engagement with other services and previous response to intervention.
Young people whose primary presentation is best met by another service, such as the Early Intervention Team, Community Eating Disorders Team, Wellbeing, Early Help Team, Voluntary Sector services or if the problems are isolated to one environment such as education.
Individuals with substance misuse problems that interfere with intervention where they are not motivated to work on this as part of treatment.
Individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders such as ASD or ADHD where there is no significant comorbid mental health problem.
We see you usually with your family, to complete an assessment and plan your treatment.
We offer appointments at local clinics. How frequently and how long you continue to see us depends on the difficulties you are experiencing.
