CAMHS Eating Disorder Service - North Staffordshire
We are a service that works with children and young people aged 8 to 18 who have a diagnosis of an eating disorder, such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa.
What we do
Our aim is to support young people and their families to recover from their eating disorder by learning what is keeping the problem going, provide a space to talk about their fears and worries and find ways to manage that are not harmful to them.
We use a number of different therapies to support our young people and their families to get better including Family therapy, CBT-E and, where appropriate, our psychiatrist will look at medication that can help with mood and anxiety.
We offer individual work, dietetic input, family therapy and we also have a parent/carer group that occurs once a month. Our healthcare support workers provide meal support to those who need a bit more help with improving their eating pattern and this can be at home or in school as necessary.
Who we work with
Children, young people (aged 8 to 18 years) and their families, where there are significant concerns regarding their eating behaviours and impact of this on physical and psychological wellbeing.
