Children and Young People
Hampshire Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)
CAMHS work together as a team to help young people and their families. Every clinician (someone who sees and treats patients) who works at CAMHS can provide high quality assessments and treatments (called ‘interventions’).
Sometimes young people benefit from seeing several different clinicians or clinicians with specialist skills and training. You or your family may have a preference about who you see and what type of help and support you would like to access. Interventions (treatments) are offered based on what difficulties you are experiencing, what goals you would like to achieve and what the evidence tells us will be most helpful in overcoming your difficulties.
If you would to like discuss whether to make a referral then you may call one of their teams between 9 am and 2 pm.
