Forensic CAMHS

The Forensic Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service is a specialist service that covers Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, and falls within the wider Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

This team is part of the Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust.

The service primarily delivers consultation and assessment for children and adolescents under 18 who have both a mental health need, and who show high risk behaviours towards others.

The young person may or may not be in contact with the Youth Justice System. In some instances, specialist intervention and treatment is offered for children with complex forensic mental health needs.

The service has good relationships with other services in Hampshire and frequently works with them to help children and adolescents.
