What are specialist CAMS?
CAMS is our young people mental health service that focus on the needs of children and young people. They are multidisciplinary teams that will consist of:
- Counsellors Support Workers
How do I get help from specialist CAMS?
Getting help from our CAMS service is easy just give us a call
You may also find it helpful to speak to:
- Your GP
- Health Visitors
- Children’s Centres
If you or your child is being supported by social services or the youth offending team, your key worker will be able to refer your child for an appointment with someone in our CAMS service.
When is the transition from CAMS to adult services?
The age children and young people move to another service can differ. For example, some transition at 16, others at 18 or older. The transition between services can be a scary time for young people as the teams they know and are used to working with change. However, you will still be with Anxious Minds and part of our amazing community.
