“I’m meeting my targets.”
“I have positive self-esteem.”
This level is for all children and young people and represents the basic level of mental health awareness and support strategies that all children and young people need for positive emotional wellbeing.
At this level of need children/young people will be showing early signs of distress that may be the start of an emerging mental health issue.
Short-term interventions that build coping strategies are given to prevent these issues from developing – small changes to prevent bigger challenges.
At this level, children and young people will need more specific support as their mental health problem will be more developed and significantly impacting their day-to-day life. There may also be other complexities such as trauma or neurodevelopmental conditions. Interventions are chosen to suit the needs of each child/young person and will vary in modality, and intensity.
At this level, children and young people will need high-level support for mental health conditions that require support from Alder Hey Fresh CAMHS. Children may be at crisis point, require medication, or several different types of specialist support.
