Core CAMHS is a team of trained Mental Health Practitioners and Assistant Practitioners from various clinical backgrounds. These include:

  • Mental Health Nurses
  • Social Workers
  • Psychologists
  • Psychiatrists.

This is the team you would usually see on your first visit to CAMHS, unless you accessed our service at a period of crisis. This team works with:

  • children
  • young people
  • parents & carers

to assess the mental health of children and adolescents who have been identified as potentially having moderate to severe mental health needs.
