Touchstone

Touchstone is a structured day service for young people aged 12-17 years and their families. The multi-disciplinary team comprises of a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist, service manager, and an experienced therapy team of nurses, psychologists, social workers, occupational, art and creative therapists.

The therapy programme offers an evidence-based intervention to help young people that are struggling to cope with relationships, mood difficulties and impulsive self-harming behaviours such as cutting. Young people can be referred by their community CAMHS teams for assessment as to whether the programme might be of benefit to them. Young people attend for at least three days of the week, with on-site school sessions as part of the programme.‚Äč
