What is CAMHS?
CAMHS stands for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. They offer assessment and treatment when children and young people have emotional, behavioural, or mental health difficulties.
These can include:
Children and young people and their families can be referred to CAMHS if children are finding it hard to cope with family life, school, or the wider world. If these difficulties are too much for family, friends, or GPs to help with, CAMHS may be able to assist.
If you have used CAMHS we would like to hear your views on how it can be improved. Your involvement is needed to let service providers know which services are working or need improvement and to make sure it respects people’s dignity, independence and promotes recovery. By having your say you can help shape the future delivery of CAMHS for other parents and carers.
