Your journey through Rise
The start of the journey through Rise is at the Navigation Hub. Clinical staff at the Navigation Hub look at the referrals and decide on which part of Rise you should be seen in first. This could be signposting to a service outside of Rise. You may be offered a group or an initial assessment, in which case a letter will be sent to you asking you to call us to book an appointment.
If it is felt that you need an initial assessment you will meet a clinician who will talk to you about why you have been referred and they will give you the opportunity to talk about what is going on for you at the moment and how you are feeling. Then we can work together to find the best way to help you. You might find it useful to write down things you would like to say or questions you wish to ask.
After the initial assessment you will receive a letter saying what is going to happen next. This could be for a therapeutic group for either yourself or your parents/carers, such as anxiety management, or a further specialist assessment or intervention may be offered. It may be that you are signposted to a different service. Unfortunately, depending on what is needed, there could be quite a wait at times for some of these.
