Treatment includes CBT for psychosis and co-existing mental health needs; family interventions/carers support, and a psycho-social therapeutic program that is trauma informed.
The ARMS service works collaboratively with other service providers including ChYPS, Substance Misuse Services and Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) services (Live Well Kent and Medway, MIND) and the 18-25 pathway for young people.
