CAMHS stands for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. We are an NHS service for children, young people (0-18) and their families, where there are concerns about emotional well-being, behaviour and mental health.
We know that talking about problems and worries can sometimes be difficult. CAMHS work involves listening, talking and thinking together, about what is going on and what might help. CAMHS staff teams are made up of different professionals who all recognise the importance of friendly and non-judgemental support.
Within City & Hackney, we deal with a range of issues from common worries that get in the way of everyday life to more severe and long standing difficulties. We also offer support for living with and understanding disabilities and autism. There are three CAMHs teams that work across City & Hackney: First Steps , Specialist CAMHS and CAMHS Disability. For more information on which team would be appropriate, call us or read more about the teams below.
