The specialist CAMHS service is a multidisciplinary team with bases in the East and West of the county.

We work closely with other professionals working with children, young people and their families and can offer them advice, consultation and training on issues to do with child and adolescent mental health.
The following information aims to detail the criteria for referral to specialist CAMHS and in doing so to provide some guidance about other services that are available to children young people and their families who do not meet these.
Where the conditions below have been identified there would also need to be a coexisting mental health problem for a referral to a specialist CAMHS to be appropriate. Where a referral does not meet this criteria, we provide some guidance about other services that are available to children young people and their families.
