Have you considered emailing or writing to CAMHS with a complaint?
I just bumped up a thread on calories for you.

Food is the medicine. Recovery is possible.

Thank you. I’ll have a look. Yes I’ve thought about that but just want to get T sorted out first. But thank you for your advice. He’s just had spaghetti Bolognese and rice pudding so still eating dinners.

I even took two of his friends on holiday with us and they all had a great time, eating huge amounts! 

Oh Kaleb, I am outraged on your behalf!  I hope you will not have to stop work altogether, but it sounds like you do need to join him for lunch - in the cafeteria or the car or wherever would work.  What options do you have for that?

I'm sorry, I don't understand if he is eating breakfast, but in order to go to school, he needs to eat breakfast.  Maybe you will need to wake him up for a snack before his normal wake-up time and then he can go back to sleep.

I wonder if there is a way to include the friends at meal/snack time.   It sounds like they set a good example.

Ugh ugh ugh.  So very sorry about the idiot at CAMHS. xx
