Jersey CAMHS wins APT Awards for excellence

06 October 2021

Jersey's Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) have won a national award for the support they provide to young Islanders to learn techniques to manage intense emotions.

A young Islander joined CAMHS Jersey representatives at the Jersey Association for Psychological Therapies (APT) annual awards for excellence in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) 2021.

Clinical Nurse Specialist, Alison Pell, a co-presenter of the Jersey CAMHS award submission, said: "After reaching the finals last year, we reflected on our learning from the awards, looking to see how we could improve the DBT offer at Jersey CAMHS. 

"We developed a Jersey Friendly Parent DBT offering called "Parenting a child with intense emotions", which is a course that can be delivered both face to face and online." 

"Thanks, and congratulations for the award also go to my co-presenter F, and their family, who experienced the DBT program and offered their support in developing the presentation of their journey through Jersey CAMHS DBT, including their parent's attendance at the newly developed parents' program."

Assistant Children and Education Minister, Deputy Trevor Pointon, said: "We're delighted that our CAMHS service has been recognised in this way and I would especially like to pass on my appreciation to the young person and Alison Pell, clinical nurse specialist, for making the presentation. Congratulations to all the team who developed the programme and participated."
