Options/Initial Appointment: In Portsmouth, the first time we meet is called your "options" when we get to know you, find out what you would like help with and talk about the options that we can offer you. In Southampton this is called your "initial assessment"


Brookvale CAMHS has created a new free self-help app called BASE that has been designed to help young people manage their stress, anxiety and depression. The app allows you to write diary entries which help you keep track of when your stress and anxiety might be at its best or worst. This will help you understand how to manage your emotions.

The app also provides handy tips on how to calm down and relax. It even produces entry reports which shows the emotions you feel the most. The app logs this data into a 7 day graph so you can see how much your mood changes over a week! BASE is used to help you note down your feelings so you can understand when your stress and anxiety is at its worse, instead of relying on memory.

You can even use BASE when you next see your healthcare professional as it helps them understand how you feel inbetween appointments. Getting help has never been easier!
