What is CAMHS?
CAMHS stands for Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services.
We help children and young people when they feel very upset, sad or worried.
Lots of people work in our service:
- Practitioners with lots of experience working with sad or upset people; they understand the things that might make them feel better.
- Group Workers who run group work. Groups are lots of fun and it’s always good for you to know you are not alone (because you aren’t).
- Special doctors called Psychiatrists; they have had extra training and understand how medicine can sometimes help people.
At CAMHS, there are no white coats and it’s not scary….we just love helping children and young people to feel better.
