Care Perspectives Ltd is an independent organisation, committed to quality service and child-centred support. Our highly-trained staff team are experts in supporting children and young people with complex mental health needs and/or other associated conditions.
This service is a coming together of highly committed and experienced professionals, who recognise the need to offer an alternative to stigmatising hospital admission and/or the often seemingly endless waits for CAMHS and other services.
Our mission is to become respected as a provider of the highest quality child-centred support, directly responding to the individual needs and characteristics of children and young people in our care.
Our first home Moonstone Lodge is based in the Midlands and aims to offer a unique mental health service for children and young people. We have developed a comprehensive multi-disciplinary team that have, between them, many decades of experience in working with young people with complex mental health needs.
We can offer a range of containing, intensive, flexible and skilled interventions, filling the gaps which exist in community and in-patient services. We will offer intensive ‘CAMHS -PLUS’ in-reach packages within our residential care setting, as an alternative to Tier 4 or in-patient admissions or as discharge placements for those leaving hospital and secure care. With this in mind, we hope to expedite discharge for those young people who are already in hospital or better still, avoid admission completely for those facing the prospect of hospitalisation due to their complex needs.
