If there are concerns about a child or a young person’s mental health there is help available. We offer a service for children and young people up to the age of 18, where there are concerns about mental health.

There are different ways that children and young people can get referred into support from the team:
It's really important that children and young people are able to you tell your GP, school nurse, or trusted adult exactly what has been happening, how it makes them feel and how long they have felt like that. It can be useful to write down worries including how long the difficulties have been happening and anything that might be causing them.
For further information and advice for support that covers Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire, please contact Specialist CAMHS on 01267 674450.
