Child and adolescent mental health services

Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS)

CAMHS provides a specialist assessment and treatment service to children and young people up to 18 years of age who are experiencing significant emotional or mental health difficulties. In practice, CAMHS involvement does not usually begin before the start of attendance at primary school but advice can be given to the parents of younger children if needed.

CAMHS has clinical care pathways in place to help with problems including low mood (depression), anxiety, eating difficulties, deliberate self-harm, trauma, conduct and psychosis.

A comprehensive range of services and interventions are available in a variety of community settings across Hull and the East Riding. A key worker is allocated to remain with each family throughout their time with CAMHS.

CAMHS operates from 8am until 6pm, Monday to Saturday
