Who are we?

Headroom are an NHS service working with Barnardo’s supporting young people who have experienced a first episode of psychosis (FEP). We work with 14-25 year olds, who have not previously been offered a full early intervention for psychosis.
We take referrals from secondary mental health services where the young person has a care coordinator.

Hub and spoke services

Community mental health teams provide initial assessment, care coordination and support in a crisis. They refer onto Headroom for specialist interventions.


Headroom provides specialist assessment; high-intensity interventions such as CBT-I; family intervention; low-intensity interventions; goals orientated support through Barnardo’s project workers; support getting back into education and/or employment; a monthly carer focused education/support group; consultation; training and supervision in line with NICE guidelines for psychosis and schizophrenia.
