"The help I have had from CAMHS"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

(as the patient),

I have been referred to Head2Head by my youth offending team worker. I previously worked with CAMHS who told me that I have Aspergers Syndrome. Michael is my Head2Head worker and he comes out to see me at home. I struggle to get to appointments as I have arthritis so having him come to my house is good. Michael comes to see me every few weeks and gives me time to discuss any issues I have and gives advice. Michael texts or rings me to arrange appointments and this is good as I forget when I get letters. 

Having this support enables me to get on better at home with my family, access education and keep out of trouble. I have positive plans for my future and want a career making music!
