Case Study: Chesterfield Royal Hospital CAMHS

Wednesday, 09 September 2020

The Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust provides health services at the Chesterfield Royal Hospital and other facilities in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. The hospital offers a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) with purpose-built spaces for all children and young people's outpatient services.

As part of their services, clinicians meet with young people and their families to discuss their mental health and seek solutions.

During these visits, the team may carry out a risk assessment using the FACE Child & Adolescent Risk Assessment Suite (CARAS). This is used by all clinicians within CAMHS who receive comprehensive training on how to complete it.

The case study is available here.
