What we do

The Transitions service aims to bridge the gap between CAMHS and AMHS by developing a ‘one stop shop’ model of services which will provide a range of timely, relevant and accessible services for young people aged 17+ in Cardiff with a diagnosis of depression, anxiety disorders or psychosis. Specifically targeted at families where there are young people in transition between statutory health services who are in need of practical assistance and would benefit from a therapeutic input. Support plans will be built into a multi agency plan in respect of taking up employment, education and training opportunities whilst managing their physical, psychological and social functioning. Young people who are not accessing CAMHS, but are in transition in respect of their personal development maybe directly accessing AMHS and may also therefore be eligible to receive a service. Self referrals are accepted as well as those from CAMHS & AMHS
