Accessing the service
CAMHS only accept referrals from professionals working with children and young people where there is concern that the child/young person has a mental health problem.
Most of our referrals come from GPs however we find it more helpful when the person who knows the child and the concerns better makes the referral. We prioritise appointments based on the Mental Health need and not who referred to CAMHS.
