We have a comprehensive multidisciplinary team with extensive experience and we aim to fill gaps in statutory services. Our team can provide expert assessments and a range of containing, intensive, flexible and skilled interventions.

Training and Consultation

Care in Mind training programmes are developed to meet the development needs of your staff team, either as one-off sessions or rolling programmes of continuing professional development. Our training is devised and delivered by our experienced clinicians from several disciplines, including Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Clinical Psychology and Mental Health Nursing. We have particular experience in providing training in key mental health issues for residential care teams, so as to help them to improve the quality of service that they provide to the individuals within their care.

Forensic Assessments

CAFAS are able to provide swift and expert forensic assessments for children, adolescents and young adults up to the age of 25 years. These are carried out by experienced Consultant Psychiatrists, Clinical Psychologists and Clinical Nurse Specialists.

Reports can be provided for both clinical and medicolegal purposes and we will also make recommendations for on-going intervention and support.

Welcome to Care in Mind

We believe that we offer a unique mental health service for young people and young adults.

Our comprehensive multidisciplinary team has extensive experience in working with individuals with complex mental health needs. We offer a range of  containing, intensive, flexible and skilled interventions, filling gaps in existing statutory services.  We are a CQC registered independent sector provider providing publically funded services to the NHS and Local Authorities.   We have established positive commissioning relationships with CCGs and Local Authorities across the North West, Yorkshire and the Midlands as well as further afield.

We offer intensive ‘Tier 3+’ inreach packages within residential care settings as discharge placements for those leaving hospital and secure care who are difficult to discharge due to their complex needs. Our placements can also be considered as an alternative to hospital admission in some cases.

Please call Rebecca Manock on 0161 638 3285 to discuss a potential referral.

We also offer:

Care in Mind was established in 2008 in response to a lack of adequately supported specialist community placements that could meet the discharge needs of young people leaving mental health inpatient units with ongoing complex needs.  We believe that our skilled and flexible approach of our clinical team is key in helping young people and young adults to maintain their progress in the community.

“The flexibility and responsiveness of the package Care In Mind offers is second to none. It offers a level of support that helps staff to feel confident that they can manage difficult situations, knowing advice is always to hand.”
