About the course

This is a one-day, online, multi-professional course aimed at mental health practitioners who are working in a CAMHS crisis team, to include mental health nurses, social workers, psychiatrists, junior doctors, occupational therapists and other allied professionals. It focuses on the assessment and management of young people in a crisis/liaison setting. CAMHS crisis teams work with children and young people who are experiencing significant mental health difficulties. They are able to offer intensive and frequent (often daily) support either in a clinic or home environment. This is a highly interactive small group training where attendees will participate in short simulated scenarios, interacting live with our simulated patients. Each simulated scenario is followed by a group debrief led by our experienced facilitators.


Aims: For participants:

  • To feel more confident in the engagement, assessment and management of children and young people who come under the care of the crisis team
  • To have the opportunity to discuss holistic and longitudinal formulations for complex patients
  • To consider how to deliver structured home treatment packages for children and young people

The fusion of Education and the Health Service is extremely exciting and now indeed essential; I am thrilled that St Mary’s is at the forefront of this. I am truly invigorated to disseminate many nuggets of wisdom and tangible strategies gained yesterday to my entire school community.

The knowledge and skills help children in many areas e.g. friendships, learning, attitude, dealing with problems at home and school. Skills will stay with them as they progress helping them to be reflective and emotionally resilient.
