Tameside and Glossop Healthy Young Minds support families who are concerned about children and young people who may be experiencing emotional health and wellbeing issues.
The service is made up of a team of health professionals, staffed by child and adolescent psychiatrists, clinical nurse specialists, psychologists, family therapists and mental health practitioners. There are also staff who specialise in working with young people with a learning disability.
The team can offer short term consultation and intervention to parents/professionals as well as working individually with young people and their families.
We offer urgent same day consultation to professionals worried about a child’s risk via our duty system and all young people admitted to hospital following deliberate self-harm/overdose receive an urgent assessment the next working day or when they are medically fit.
