Calderdale and Kirklees CAMHS

Our aim is to improve the mental health of individuals accessing our service and we work closely with other Trust and community services to ensure the needs of the individual are best met.

The emotional wellbeing of children, young people and families accessing our service is the first priority of our team.

Our team work hard to build positive relationships with children during such a challenging period in their life. The coping strategies and self-management techniques our team use ensure that children can live life to their full potential.

Our specialist team offer a range of assessments, and if agreed by the young person and their family, a variety of treatment options that include:

  • Solution focused therapy (a goal directed therapy that focuses on solutions instead of problems)
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) (a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think or behave)
  • Family work and therapy
  • Child psychodynamic psychotherapy
  • Art psychotherapy
  • Group work
  • Behavioural management
  • Play therapy
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing therapy (a treatment used to reduce the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder)
  • Medication

We aim to offer a timely and accessible service to children, young people and their families in Calderdale and Kirklees. Our team ensure that individuals have access to the appropriate assessments, have support and treatment as quickly as possible and are managed in the community wherever possible.

Our team put the needs of children, young people and their families first, with the main focus of our work being to help improve their emotional wellbeing and ability to cope.

By offering a definitive diagnosis of an individual’s condition we hope to give them the confidence and necessary self-management skills to prevent their condition from relapsing in the future.
