Primary Mental Health Teams

Our primary mental health team (PMHT) is part of the Havering child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS).

We work with young people aged up to 18 and their families who are experiencing social, emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties.

We offer a community-based initial assessment and can offer 6-12 sessions with regular reviews.

PMHT workers can offer therapeutic approaches including:

  • behavioural management
  • solution focused therapy
  • psychodynamic therapy
  • cognitive behavioural therapy
  • anger and anxiety management
  • parenting programmes
  • family work/groups
  • assertiveness

The PMHT team can liaise with other agencies involved with the family and can make specialist referrals
