"Mental health support for older child."

About: Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust / Child and adolescent mental health

(as a parent/guardian),

Moved to area 4 weeks ago. Absolutely isolated with no support despite a referral to and 2 brief visits from early intervention team. Complete lack of understanding of child's needs. Very strange nurse who my daughter is highly nervous of. I feel there will be a downward spiral in my daughters mental health as a result. She is on anti psychotic medication and the lack of concern or support is breath taking.

Nine months on from this and nothing has changed.

This post has somehow been tagged as CAMHS but it is the Early Intervention Service based at The Mount Accrington. Apparently at 16 my child is an adult.
