CAMHS stands for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. Children and young people (up to age 18) and their families can be referred to CAMHS if children are finding it hard to cope with family life, school or the wider world. Everyone feels low, worried or angry at times; this is ok. But for some people, too much of this can stop them having fun, being with friends, being healthy and going to school or college. Sometimes people try different ways to cope such as talking it over with a friend or family, school counselling or using their own coping strategies and the problem doesnt go away. If this is the case and the difficulties are getting in the way of their day to day life, getting worse or if a young person feels they cannot keep themselves safe because of their difficulties then it may be CAMHS can help.
