Summary:
We are a Tier 3 child and adolescent mental health service (CAHMS). We provide outpatient assessment and treatment for children and young people, up to the age of 18, who have complex and ongoing mental health problems that significantly affect their daily functioning. We also offer an early intervention service to young people who are experiencing psychosis. A psychotic illness involves distorted perceptions of reality – thinking, feeling, hearing and seeing – often with symptoms of hallucinations and delusions.

We care for children and young people who are registered with a Lewisham GP.
 
A Tier 3 CAMHS is provided by a team of specialists in a community mental health clinic or hospital outpatient clinic. This service is for children and young people who have had severe and complex problems for some time.
 
Team members in a Tier 3 service are likely to include child and adolescent psychiatrists, social workers, clinical psychologists, community psychiatric nurses, child psychotherapists, occupational therapists, as well as art, music and drama therapists.
