CAMHS Plus

CAMHS plus support children and young people experiencing a mental health crisis, which may include visiting you at home with your family. We also undertake ward assessments for those admitted to the paediatric ward for self-harm and suicidal ideation (wanting or thinking about taking your own life).

The team offer 7 day follow-up clinics and emergency assessments.

We work with partners and multi-agency groups such as paediatric wards, schools, children services, mental health liaison in acute hospitals, adult mental health teams and inpatient mental health hospitals. We also provide advice to other staff members, as well as offering service shadowing as an opportunity for other professionals to learn more of what we do.

Worcestershire Single Point of Access (SPA) referral information

Used to refer to Worcestershire CAMHS services listed here: Eating Disorders, CAMHS Plus, Learning Disability Services, Specialist CAMHS (Tier 3).

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.

Send referrals to:

Email:  WHCNHS.CAMHS-SPA@nhs.net

If you are unsure whether the concerns you have will be suitable for CAMHS you can either call or email us directly on the information above. If we feel that we are not the right source of help for you we may try to make other suggestions of support which could be useful.
