    We work with young people that have severe, persistent and complex needs that affect their daily life.We aim to intervene and support young people and their families before they reach a crisis point.

    Stepped care
    Our team uses a stepped care model. Stepped care means that the level of help provided depends on how severe a young person's issues are.

    If a young person's symptoms get worse, we will offer them additional help; this is called Ôstepping up'. As things improve we will see whether it's appropriate to Ôstep down'. This means that we will offer lower intensity treatment such as workshops, groups, and guided self-help.
