Transitioning to Adult Services
Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation Trust (LPFT) has several Mental Health and Learning Disability services across Lincolnshire.
These include Steps2Change, Adult Eating Disorders, Adult Community Mental Health and Acute & Rehabilitation Inpatient services. There’s loads of information about our services on our main Trust Website.
If you are aged 16 or over and feel you would like to access our adult mental health services, we will support you to have a joint assessment with the adult service that would be best suited to meet your needs.
If you are 17, already with CAMHS, and feel like you would like to access our mental health services beyond your 18th Birthday, we will support you through a transitioning process.
The transition process will start no later than 6 months before your 18th Birthday. This will ensure your transition goes smoothly and you receive a seamless service. You will have a named worker from the adult service who will work with your CAMHS Lead Professional to ensure your transition is successful and you know what to expect from the adult service that will be seeing you.
If you feel like you have achieved your goals and no longer require input from CAMHS, you will be discharged back to the care of your GP.
Please note unless otherwise stated, Mental Health Services are for anyone age 16 or over.
More information about our services can be found below. Generally, if you were requiring a transition into adult services we would aim to transition you into the appropriate Adult Community Mental Health team, although we also transition from child inpatient services to adult inpatient services as required.
