  • Manchester & Salford 16-17 year old Team (Emerge)

Emerge is a comprehensive multi-disciplinary service targeted at 16 and 17 year olds in order to provide a developmentally appropriate, flexible and responsive service. 

It is based in the community offering mental health services in a range of settings. The service currently operates from Monday to Friday during the hours of 9.00 am and 5.00 pm. Emerge is a stand-alone CAMHS service which focuses on the specific needs of 16 – 18 year olds with moderate to severe mental health problems. The team will accept routine and urgent referrals. All accepted urgent referrals will be prioritised and assessed within two working days. 16 – 17 year old young people presenting in emergency and / or in immediate crisis should attend their local Accident & Emergency Department where Adult Mental Health Services (AMHS) will assess and liaise with Emerge 16 – 17 MFT as appropriate.

The service operates an open referral system. Referrals should be made using our standard referral form which can be faxed or posted to the team. They are discussed at the weekly multidisciplinary team meeting and each referrer is informed of the outcome.

Anyone who is concerned about a young person’s mental health can also discuss their concerns directly with a worker on the team.
