East Midlands Community Forensic Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (FCAMHS) is a multi-disciplinary service providing advice, consultation, specialist assessment and support to services and teams working with young people in the community who exhibit risky behaviours or who are already in the youth justice system and have or display signs of mental health difficulties.
The service consists of professionals from Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and the mental health charity St Andrew's Healthcare. The multi-disciplinary team has diverse and extensive clinical experience of children, young people and adults from criminal justice, secure mental health hospitals, community mental health, social work, learning disability and education settings.
We work in collaboration with you and your team to help the young person:
