Specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (sCAMHS) provides specialist mental health services for children and young people with mental health problems.
We are community-based, consisting of multi-disciplinary teams, and the provision of specialist services are coordinated and provided from a central base.
We aim to provide early intervention at the right time in the right place every time. sCAMHS consists of both Primary and Secondary Mental Health Services.
We offer assessment and treatment when children and young people have emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties as well as promoting emotional wellbeing and preventative mental health services and treatment to children and young people.
We support teachers, youth workers and people working with children and young people by offering advice and training on how to recognise mental health difficulties.
We aim to improve the emotional well-being, mental health and psychological well-being of all children and young people. This will be achieved by promoting positive mental health and well-being, reducing risk and building resilience.
