COVID-19 Liverpool CAMHS Support

 

The Liverpool CAMHS Partnership is adapting as Coronavirus impacts our everyday lives.

YPAS and each of the partners are working hard to ensure children, young people and families get the support they need during this time. The following document outlines the support available from each partner and how this support can be accessed.

If a child or young person is in crisis, they can call the crisis care line any time, but they should only present to Accident Emergency Department if they need medical treatment or are struggling to keep themselves safe in the immediate moment.

How to fall asleep faster and sleep better
