CAMHS is an NHS service for children, young people and their families, where there are concerns about emotional well-being, behaviour and mental health.

We know that talking about problems and worries can sometimes be difficult. CAMHS work involves listening, talking and thinking together, about what is going on and what might help. CAMHS staff teams are made up of different professionals who all recognise the importance of friendly and non-judgemental support.

First Steps service aims to help with difficulties relating to behaviour, emotions and relationships and try to tackle issues early on, before they become severe or too difficult to manage.

Specialist CAMHS work is mostly with children, young people and families where there are also family and community stressors: including educational difficulties, offending behaviours, abuse and neglect, trauma, attachment difficulties, parenting difficulties, self-harm and substance-misuse problems.

The First-Stage Yeldall Manor programme provides residential rehabilitation for men aged between 18 and 65 who want to overcome serious drug or alcohol substance misuse issues.

The First-Stage programme lasts 12-24 weeks and, on completion of it, there is the opportunity to continue on to the second-stage programme as preparation for living independent lives drugs, alcohol and crime-free.

The First-Stage has two main objectives:
• to help residents understand and begin to deal with the problems which lie behind their addiction
• to help residents to develop the character qualities, relational skills, personal disciplines and work ethic upon which long-term abstinence can be built
