Therapy Partners have been carrying out work to support children and young people with Eating Disorders and their families and other professionals.
This pilot study, funded by the NHS clinical commissioning groups within North and East Kent, researched the effectiveness of early intervention during our work promoting and protecting the emotional wellbeing of children and young people.
The basis of our work is in line with the NHS Five Year Forward View (2014) which emphasises the need for early intervention and services to be integrated and provided close to patients and their families, usually within a 5-mile radius.
By providing targeted early intervention and offering therapy that is local, the best possible recovery outcomes can be achieved. Our support has extended beyond the reach of traditional services, recognising that early intervention is key and our results support this.
As an organisation we believe that people have the right to choose which therapist they see and when, making therapy accessible to all who need it. We also like to use the latest technology and offer support online, by phone and text.
