Buttercup Ward – CAMHS PICU Service

Gender: Mixed

Age: 12-18

Beds: 8

Buttercup Ward is our CAMHS PICU service for young people aged 12-18 with severe mental illness.

The service focuses on working with young people to understand their mental health and their risks and support their recovery, enabling them to be successfully discharged to a less restrictive environment. Thus reducing the possibility of relapse and likelihood of requiring a secure service in the future. The service is able to provide robust care and support for young people displaying significant levels of challenging behaviour.

Referrals are accepted from all over the UK. We offer a rapid response system and aim to respond to referral requests within an hour of receiving adequate clinical information. Buttercup Ward has full Multi-disciplinary Team (MDT) input including a consultant psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, occupational therapist, nurses, healthcare assistant, social workers, family therapist and speech and language therapist.
