Conditions in scope
Please see the CAMHS Request Criteria page.
Sometimes the difficulties can be supported by a range of interventions across services. We may expect interventions to have been tried before coming to CAMHS, for example support within school, counselling, children’s centres, parenting groups etc. Please consider whether this is appropriate before making your request and ensure that any supporting information is submitted along with the request so that clinical screening can be expedited.
How can you support a child?
It is important that children are listened to and believed and kept safe. You may need to refer to the local social service team if safeguarding is an issue.
Please review the list below and ensure that you have the appropriate documentation available to submit with your request – items in bold are mandatory (by age appropriateness)
