Children's Bereavement Centre
The charity that supports local children and their families affected by death or terminal illness.
We are an alliance of over 1000 public, private, voluntary and community organisations in England who care about suicide prevention and are willing to take action to reduce suicide and support those affected by suicide.
We offer a range of support and treatment options.
Professionals in CAMHS work together with children, young people and their families to try to overcome their difficulties using evidence-based treatments.
Together, we create goals and keep track of how the child or young person is doing to make sure the support is helping, with regular reviews to think about treatment options. Children and young people may need different types of treatment depending on their age and developmental stage.
The service also offers information and support evenings for parents and carers of young people who self- harm, and non-violent resistance sessions for parents and carers to allow them to confidently de-escalate conflict at home.
