Forensic Child and Adolescent Mental

We work collaboratively with agencies across a variety of community and secure settings to ensure best practice in managing young people up to the age of 18 who present with complex needs and high-risk behaviours. These young people may or may not have had contact with the criminal justice system.

We can offer the following:

  • Risk management advice
  • Liaison
  • Specialist assessment
  • Complex cases formulation
  • Intervention
  • Case formulation
  • Joint working
  • Supervised practice
  • Training
  • Supervision
  • Clinical consultation
  • Specialist interventions

The community FCAMHS is a multidisciplinary service with a range of clinical expertise. We also have access to the services of a wider multi-disciplinary team working in the young people’s services at Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust as required.

Our referral criteria includes young people where there may be a concern regarding mental health, including those with neurodevelopmental disorders such as learning disabilities or autism.
