“I love working with young people, they keep me on my toes” – Mica Evans, ADHD Nurse Specialist speaks to Nursing Times

One of our parents shared this wise advice about resisting the urge to “Fix It” that she learned from Mindfulness: “Thoughts are like busses. You don’t have to get on the first one that comes along. You can wait until the bus comes that takes you where you want to go”.
This is #CarersWeek, and in our CAMHS parents & carers group session yesterday we focused on self-care as vital not just for being able to care for others, but because we deserve it as individuals of value.
As I am every week, blown away by the insight and thoughtfulness of our Parents & Carers during today's session on practicing Self-Compassion. My favourite excerise was turning self-criticism into compassionate motivation.
Westminster CAMHS Young People Participation group is back in full swing and we can’t wait to hear all of their feedback. We are so grateful for the time given by our young people!
It is feedback week at Westminster CAMHS! All young people and families should have received links from their lead clinicians on how to get involved.
