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.
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.
