A few words from a member of the team -
‘I absolutely love coming to work to see how I can best help the children and young people in my care and have worked for the last 22 years in the same CAMHs team, I still have the same strong drive to be the very best I can be, and I hope that I can still be in the team in another 10 years...!’
