The Service

CAMHS stands for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service and Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust provides this in Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.

Lincolnshire CAMHS

In Lincolnshire, CAMHS transformed its services in April 2016 and introduced a new model of working. This was the result of the commissioners, Lincolnshire County Council, conducting a review of CAMHS over an 18 month period involving consultation with 55 stakeholder groups. The outcome of this, and the guidance in ‘Future in Mind’, was used to develop a new specification and design a new model of working to better meet the needs of the children and young people of Lincolnshire.

The service includes:

  • A Single Point of Access for Referrers
  • A multi-disciplinary team known as Core CAMHS
  • A Crisis Intervention and Home Treatment service available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • A community based Eating Disorder service
  • Support to vulnerable groups such as children who are in looked after care, children with a learning disability and those in contact with the Youth Justice system.
  • Care and support through the transition to adult, or other services
  • Support to other services involved with children and young people
