Children and Young People’s Service (CYPS)

CYPS provides a service to all children and young people aged 0-18 years living in Newcastle and Gateshead who present with mental health difficulties.

Services for children and young people with a learning disability are provided through collaboration between CYPS and the Community Learning Disability Team. Referrals are accepted from any professional working with the child or family or self referrals, either in writing or by phone.

The service is able to provide:

  • Assessment, diagnosis and intervention on a range of mental health issues.
  • Intensive response and home-based treatment when mental health issues are causing significant concern.
  • An intensive Eating Disorder Service to support children and young people on the eating disorder pathway who are at risk of an inpatient admission.
  • A transition support package to those young people approaching their 18th birthday who may need continuing support as adults.
