"Getting the help I needed"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services – Community(County)

(as the patient),

I used to go to CAMHS at a clinic. This was alright. I was then told I was going to see someone from Head2Head. Michael came to see me at home and did an assessment with me. Since then Michael has come to see me at home, school and in the community. It has been good and has helped me a lot. Michael has done work with me that has helped me stop getting in to trouble and stay in school. Michael has done thinking work with me and this has helped me with my problems. Michael goes to meetings about me, talks to my mum and to the school teachers to help them understand my problems. 

My life has improved as I am now in school full time, I have joined the Army Cadets and I want to go in the army when I am older. I also play for a football team and if I am good enough would like to become a professional footballer. 

Having a CAMHS worker who listens to me, sees me where I want to be seen and works with my family has helped my life for the better
