Local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS):
In addition to the above, we provide local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services – known as CAMHS for short.
You can access these services directly without needing to see your doctor, or you may wish to speak to your doctor first, who can then put you in touch with the right service for you.
