How do I get help from CAMHS?
If you are over 12 years old, you may want to Self Refer yourself. Or you can ask a parent / carers / professional to make a referral for you, but you will need to give your permission for this. If you are under 12 years old then a parent / carer/ professional will need to complete the referral with you.
It is important to tell the person referring you as much as you can so you can get the help you need. For more information on CAMHS / ISSU18, you can read our CAMHS ISSU18 Information Leaflet.
If we think we might be the best service to help you, then we will offer you a first assessment appointment. We might then sign post you to other services, offer brief help or provide specialist help depending on the difficulties you are experiencing.
