Be Safe is a small multi-disciplinary team that works with children and young people who have engaged in problematic (PSB) or harmful sexual behaviour (HSB), their parents/carers and those supporting them.

Children and young people who display harmful sexual behaviour often need help themselves and may have experienced harm themselves.  Be Safe is part of Specialist CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service), and offers direct assessment and therapeutic intervention (‘treatment’) services to children, young people and their families, as well as advice, training and consultation to a broad range of professionals.
