How to organise a referral?

Healthcare Professionals can refer young people to us by emailing the Footsteps referral form to [email protected]. Young people or their parent/guardian should book online or call us on 01642 061047.

We accept referrals for young people residing in any Stockton-on-Tees postcode or those attending schools in this area.

You can access the service yourself or if it is felt to be more appropriate a referral form can be completed by another professional. This could be:
• Your own GP
• Your school
• A youth worker
• A social worker
• A CAMHS practitioner
• A paediatrician

The following people are not suitable for this service:

  • Young people who require urgent care – Please contact NHS111
  • Those who are an immediate risk to themselves or others – Those at immediate risk should call the CAMHS Crisis Team on 0800 0516171
  • Those who are already under the CAMHS service
  • Those with significant mental health disorders requiring Tier 3 services
