  2. What is an assessment?

    This is where you meet a Health Professional and they listen and ask you about your current difficulties. They will tell you if they need to discuss this with other professionals before offering something that may help you. This could include arranging for you to see someone else who is more specialist.

  3. What is confidentiality?

    CAMHS is a confidential service, which means not telling other people what you tell us unless you agree to us doing so because it would be helpful. However, the exception to this is if the CAMHS professional is concerned for you or others then they will have to share it to keep everybody safe.

  4. This means agreeing to something that affects you. The person you see in CAMHS should check that you agree with the help they are suggesting and explain the possible choices if you do not agree. Informed Consent means that you fully understand what you are agreeing to.
