Anyone in the Scottish Borders?

    Hello lovely people,
    I'm just wondering if there are any parents out there in the Scottish Borders at all?
    I'm new to these parts and I'm completely alone. What's out there in terms of support and / or children's services?
    I've been in touch with social work but I'm on a waiting list as they have no support workers available at this time. What are CAMHS like in these parts? School are making a referral for my son. He's 9.
    Any information and help would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks

    Hi ,
    Apologies for the late response life has been hectic at present . I live just outside Kelso .
    Do you want to PM me .
    I have set up a Scottish Borders and North Northumberland PDA support Group Page and we have just had our first parents only meet up .
    I Petitioned The Scottish Parliament after my horrendous journey . CAMHS was an absolute disgrace .
    We are just waiting for our next Scottish Petition to go live . We are having a rather frustrating wait .

    I was actually at Holyrood on Thursday supporting another friend with her MH Petition and was talking at length to Monica Lennon MSP and Brian Whittle MSP afterwards about my experience of the system .
    Brian was on the original Petition Committee .
