The Choice Clinic offers a single point of access to CAMHS for children and young people presenting with a range of moderate to severe mental health difficulties. The Clinic manages and offers families their first or ‘CHOICE’ appointment with Wirral CAMHS. During the ‘Choice’ appointment a mental health practitioner will work with the family and young person to help them to share a range of information and to agree a plan based on the assessment of need; this may be an agreement for further work together with CAMHS or a signpost to other agencies or support if this is felt to be more appropriate for the young persons presentation.
Young people admitted to the children’s ward at Arrowe Park Hospital will be assessed by the Risk Team who are also based within the Choice Clinic.
