About Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) provides mental health programs to infants, children and young people.  This includes services set in the community and in a hospital setting.

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services are available for children and young people under the age of 18, and their families who are experiencing  significant mental health issues.

Children and families are referred to these services by their treating therapist, specialist, GP, school or other community organisation. Information and advice about accessing a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service is available by contacting your local Community CAMHS clinic. There is a designated person available at each clinic who can provide advice about referrals and service options in your district.
