  1. Self Harm Service (SHOPS)

    The Self-Harm Outpatient Service (SHOPs) is a specialist and national self-harm service. We provide two years of intensive longer-term psychotherapy for adults experiencing complex and enduring problems relating to self-harm or other forms of self-destructiveness. These behaviours are understood and worked with in the context of difficulties in relationships, early adversity and experiences that may include trauma. We work with people to help them understand how turning to self-destructiveness can serve as a way of coping with underlying problems. We provide a setting that can help people bear intense and disturbing experiences.

    We are involved in outcome research in psychotherapy and our clinical work is undertaken by senior and experienced psychotherapists, and supervised mental health practitioners.

    Individuals appropriate to this service often make frequent use of emergency services or multiple care agencies. Many have been diagnosed as having a personality disorder, and may also have suffered from eating disorders, depression, complex trauma or alcohol and substance misuse. For many, their emotional problems and difficulties in forming mutually satisfying relationships can be linked to adverse experiences in early life and contribute to longer term complex problems.

  4. Snowsfields Adolescent Unit (Maudsley Hospital)

    Snowsfields Adolescent Unit is an open adolescent unit, offering mental health care for adolescents with serious mental illness who require hospital admission. We have developed a national and international reputation for innovation and pioneered the introduction of a comprehensive, all-hours emergency admission service.

    The majority of the young people we treat are emergency admissions, however planned admissions can also be arranged. Admissions are accepted 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, and can be accepted under the Mental Health Act.

    Around half of the young people admitted to our unit have psychosis. Others have problems relating to their mood, often posing a risk to themselves. We are also able to admit young people with a variety of other psychiatric or neurodevelopmental disorders, or where there is uncertainty about diagnosis.

    As we are an open unit, we are unable to admit young people who pose a level of risk that is not consistent with being cared for in such an environment. This judgement is always based on individual risk assessment rather than applying absolute exclusion criteria, and is reviewed regularly. People requiring care in a more secure setting can be admitted to the unit if the risk has altered.

    We provide a broad range of interventions, which are delivered by a team of psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, teachers, occupational therapists, social workers and other therapists.

    We maintain close links with the person's referring team to ensure they experience a smooth transition back to the community. Day treatment is often used as a step-down service and can sometimes be used to avoid admission altogether.

    Our team is primarily based within the Accident and Emergency (A&E) department at Kings College Hospital. When children and young people come to see us we will assess them in A&E.

    If it is appropriate for the young person to be discharged from the hospital, we will arrange for them to be followed up in the community. We can provide up to four additional appointments. If longer term treatment is needed, we will refer them to another CAMHS team.

    Our team also manages duty calls for urgent referrals. We can offer help for someone that is already being seen by a CAMHS service, depending on their needs. In some cases, we can offer an appointment on the same day so that the child or young person does not need to attend A&E.

  12. Southwark CAMHS Outreach Team

    Southwark CAMHS Outreach Teamis part of Southwark Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). We are a specialist team for adolescents in Southwark between the ages of 13 to 18 years. Our aim is to reduce the number of times young people in crisis visit A&E, and to provide help before they experience a crisis that might lead to an A&E visit, or hospital admission.

    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.

    Our team works in partnership with a young person's CAMHS team to provide timely interventions. We can help to engage with young people that may previously have been hard to reach by providing intensive support in the community.

    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.
