Parents tell us that they want to know what they can do in a crisis. Specialist CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) is increasingly difficult to access quickly and sometimes families wait for 6 weeks or more unsure of what they can do to support their child. We can provide on line coaching support for parents waiting to be seen by CAMHS but we are not available 24 hours a day. For this reason we are suggesting parents with children with emotional and mental health difficulties have a Safety Plan.
