Our vision is to improve outcomes for children and young people through the provision of evidence-based care across a wide range of services, delivered by a highly trained and well supported workforce.

We aim for high quality, choice, flexible access and the inclusion of children, young people and their families or carers in the development and delivery of our services.

We offer specialist mental health services to children and young people (up to 18 years) and their families. We recognise that growing up can be stressful and worrisome at times. Feeling sad, lonely, worried, angry, frightened or feelings that nobody understands you are common feelings. We also know that children, young people and their families can become unwell at times.
