About us

 CAMHS Plus is a small team, which are committed to working with young people and their families to improve understanding and accommodate their needs. We have experienced, knowledgeable, skilled and adaptable staff that always keep the young person and their family at the centre of all our care and interventions.

We do assessments on paediatric wards, within peoples home's and in the community for example schools and colleges. We 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 offer advice to other staff members, as well as offering service shadowing as learning opportunity to have better awareness of what the service does.

How to access the service

We are currently reviewing how we safely support our patients during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The Government are asking everyone to be vigilant to try to delay the spread of the virus.  In response to this we have made the decision to where appropriate move to telephone or teleconferencing in place of face to face appointments. 

From the 23rd of March we will be moving to a telephone based system, this means that our clinicians will consult with both you as the referrer and families over the phone. To support this and aid information being passed easily to our patients and their families please secure an up to date email address for these families and include this with your referral.

We thank you for your support.

Referrals are taken from Professionals via CAMHS SPA (Single Point of Access).
