Contact Point

Accessing Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)

We provide two Contact Points dependent on whether the young person has a Hull or East Riding GP. We accept telephone referrals from parents/families and young people aged 16-18 years and by on-line referral form for professionals. If a young person is not currently registered with a GP you can telephone either Contact Point who will be able to advise you.

Both Contact Point teams can be contacted between 9am and 5pm weekdays excluding bank holidays.

Humber Young Peoples Urgent Mental Health 24/7 Helpline – 01482 301701 option 2

This helpline offers mental health support and advice for young people up to the age of 18 years in urgent need of help.  It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The service is also available for family members, carers and professionals who are concerned about a young person.

You will speak to Call Handlers who are experienced in talking to young people and adults in distress and provide guidance to help you manage the situation and your feelings.  They have information on all the health, social and voluntary services available to support you. They will refer to these services or make an appointment if this is needed. They may also decide you need a crisis response from our CAMHS Crisis Team.  If this is the case the CAMHS Crisis Team will contact you to agree what support you need which could include a visit to your home from one of our CAMHS Crisis Clinicians.
