Child and adolescent services. Support for children and adolescents.

What are Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services?

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) are specialist mental health services for children and young people, provided by Psymplicity Healthcare. CAMHS provide diagnosis, treatment and support for young people suffering from emotional, behavioural and mental health issues.

If your child is suffering from mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or other conditions, our CAMHS team will be able to help. What makes them different is that they provide a holistic family approach, and always treat the child by involving the family members in every decision and treatment plan.

Types of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services Professionals

CAMHS multidisciplinary teams consist of mental health professionals who work together to help children and adolescents cope with their conditions and manage associated symptoms.

CAMHS professionals include:

Psychologists:Mental health professionals who help children and their families understand the difficulties they are facing, and the impact these difficulties have on their emotions, behaviour and thinking.

Psychotherapists:Experts that can work with your child and family to understand the underlying cause of your child’s mental health issues, such as past trauma and life events.

Consultant psychiatrists:Medically-qualified doctors who diagnose mental illnesses and support the family with an individual treatment plan and pathway through the use of CAMHS specialised therapists and psychologists.

Family therapists:Family therapists provide a safe environment for families to work through mental health issues and difficulties. In most cases, what a child suffering from a mental health issue and their family needs the most is a safe environment to speak freely.

Clinical social workers:Clinical social workers are referred to manage cases where children require extra help in dealing with their mental health conditions.

What can Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services help with?
