At Young Foundations, we believe that children and young people with mental health issues, leaving hospital, require caring relationships, targeted treatment and a safe environment. Our clinical support team is led by a psychiatrist working directly with the young person and the staff team. Young Foundations is registered with the General Medical Council as a Designated Body to oversee the quality of our psychiatric care.

Our consultant child psychiatrists lead our multi-disciplinary teams and they provide the expert medical help each young person needs. We can take over the management of their medication and develop psychological treatment programmes to meet their needs. We will deliver services set out in Community Treatment Orders and assist in progress along care pathways leading to improved and fulfilling lives.

Our clinical support is fully integrated in to each home, and all of our staff are trained in psychiatric and psychological treatment models. This additional training underpins the relationship based ethos of every home and gives the staff team the confidence and competence to work successfully with young people with complex needs.

Our staff team feel proud about the part we play in helping the children and young people to make safe and managed transitions out of hospital.
