CHILD AND ADOLESCENT MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE

CHILD ADOLESCENT MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES CAN SUPPORT YOUNG PEOPLE WITH EMOTIONAL BEHAVIOURAL/SOCIAL AND INTERPERSONAL PROBLEMS.

 

WHAT IS CAMHS?

 

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service offer specialist advice and assessment to young people whilst also offering support for children, their families and carers. Children and young people can often be troubled by emotional, behavioural and mental health problems. This can cause worry and distress to both themselves and those who care for them. If you are concerned about your child’s mental health, please contact the duty doctor at your medical centre.

 

TREATMENT

The CAMHS Team will ask you questions about your difficulties and the positives and strengths in your life and your family. There will be plenty of opportunity for you to ask us questions too. Sometimes we will suggest another service that is more suitable for your needs. We will ask you to complete a confidential online questionnaire, The Developmental and Well-Being Assessment (DAWBA) to ensure we have a full understanding of the issues. Whilst we prefer young people to attend the initial appointment with their parents or carers, you will be offered the opportunity to have some individual time. Through these discussions decisions are reached with you about the type of treatment that would be most helpful.

 

For more information on this service please see your GP at your local medical centre. You can reach the CAMHS team directly below.
