Hello and welcome to the Hampshire Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service website. I am going to give you an audio tour so that I can help direct you to what you are looking for, and tell you about all the awesome bits that are available right here.

Helping with emotional wellbeing and mental health

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) are an NHS service that aims to help young people up to the age of 18 who are finding it hard to manage their emotional and psychological health, and who are suffering with acute, chronic and severe mental health problems.

CAMHS have community teams of staff across the Hampshire area that have expertise in working with children/young people with complex mental health difficulties and their families/carers. Our staff also have expertise in working with children and young people from vulnerable groups and their networks. This includes children in care, young people involved with the criminal justice system, children with learning disabilities and those with eating disorders. There is likely to be a clinic near you.

If you are worried about a young person please refer to the specific guidance on the website in relation to the different mental health difficulties that they may be experiencing. This will give tips, help and guidance on whether a referral to CAMHS may be helpful: click here.
