Walsall CAMHS hosts successful open day

camhs open dayEarlier this week the public were welcomed to Canalside, as the Trust showcased its range of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services in Walsall.

The open door event was well attended by parents, school groups and representatives of external agencies such as youth support clubs, health centres, SureStart and Connexions.

Professionals from all services, including early intervention, psychotherapy, eating disorders and learning disabilities, were on hand to explain the work they do and answer any questions.

There was a friendly, informal atmosphere, with lots of free resources for visitors to take away and plenty of refreshments on offer too. Feedback from those in attendance was overwhelmingly positive; many praising the helpful and informative staff.

Diane Wright, Parent Support Advisor for Alumwell Infant School, said: “It’s been a fantastic event and a great opportunity for us to have a look around and talk to staff and hear about some of the things that are happening within the service.”
