Second Opinion Assessments and Consultation

We work closely with local CAMHS, Schools, Paediatricians, GPs, Social Care and YOT.  

We can provide Court Reports if required by families and we aim to be available for Mental Health Act Assessments and Human Rights Medico-Legal work when required.  

Treatment options include psychotherapy (Family Therapy, CBT, CAT, psychodynamic and behavioural approaches) and medication when clinically indicated and appropriate. 

Virtual / Tele-Psychiatry consultations (consultations via the internet or telephone) are only available for follow up appointments where appropriate.

Reliable Mental Health Information for Families
Please see information available on our website.  We also offer presentations to groups of families or young people on mental health or child development topics.  Our presentations are often offered pro bono.  

Professional Resources, Training & Development
We offer crisis and practical problem resolution including morale strengthening sessions.  Systemic principles are applied.  We can assist in Quality of Care Evaluations including Medical and Non-Medical Appraisals.  We offer training on topics in Child Psychiatry to organisations and professionals in the UK and abroad.  Pro bono training is often offered to individuals working with vulnerable children.  Professionals in Cambridge or London can also join our Continuing Professional Development group.  

NHS Service Provision & Service Development
We have long standing service contracts with mental health organisations, such as NHS Trusts, private and charitable organisations.  Please see Our Services for further details. We ask that Clinical or Medical Directors contact us directly for further information.  

Service Development in Developing Countries
We aim to be available on a regular basis to assist in specialist mental health service development in developing countries.  We can offer direct or virtual input from the UK to countries abroad wanting to develop Child Psychiatry and specialist mental health (multi-disciplinary) services.  We ask that organisations contact us directly to discuss this service.  

International Service Development and Provision
Consultant Child Psychiatrists are often available to offer services outside of the UK, where there is a particular need within specialist mental health services or for specialist mental health services.  We believe it is important to work in countries with different cultures, ranging from Ireland, Canada and Australia to smaller islands scattered across the oceans, to learn from other cultures and share knowledge and experience.  We also offer consultation from the UK to professionals in countries where there are no or limited child psychiatry services or child psychiatrists.  
Professionals range from GPs and Paediatricians to Social Workers and teachers. We ask that organisations contact us for further information. 

International Outreach Services
Mental Health Bus International Projects 
We provide specialist outreach mental health services to vulnerable and hard to reach children.  This is the international outreach division of CINAPS Ltd and a
pro bono service.  This service has thus far been funded by CINAPS Ltd and our directors, but we hope to procure private funding from individuals and organisations to continue these projects.  

Please see 
www.mentalhealthbus.co.uk for further details or to offer your support.

Charitable Work in the UK and Developing Countries
We offer services to charitable organisations through ongoing contractual agreements, as well as ad hoc, pro bono assessments, consultation, supervision, teaching, training and presentations to promote awareness of mental health problems (and solutions) and to eradicate stigma.  
All professionals working with or in collaboration with CINAPS are encouraged to offer pro bono services.  We ask that organisations, individuals or GPs contact us directly for further information.  
 
Please see voluntary work for further details.

Children have incredible courage, strength and resilience to move forward in the worst of circumstances.  It is our duty however, as professionals, to assist them in their journey by offering flexible, accessible, creative services to support children, young adults, families and carers, and to work collaboratively with other agencies and professionals in medical and non-medical fields to meet the needs of children and families, promoting awareness of mental health problems and developing services through education and co-working.  This is our goal.
