Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) is a set of specialist services (Child and Family Service; Inspire - children's learning disability team) for young people of all abilities to support with mental health, emotional and psychological difficulties.

We aim to achieve this by doing the following:

  • offering support to young people directly through talking therapies
  • working with parents and carers, and siblings
  • working with members of the wider care system (for example: teachers, care staff)
  • working alongside others (this means that we will teach or support others to put the help in place with the young person)
  • offering services through local health centres, GP surgeries and schools when this is more appropriate or convenient.

Our aim is to support the young person and the family in understanding, managing and ultimately improving their own emotional wellbeing.
