Primary mental health team (PMHT)

Our primary mental health team (PMHT) is part of the Havering child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS). We work with young people aged 4 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 to 12 sessions of clinical interventions 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 can liaise with other agencies involved with the family and can make specialist referrals.
