What can I expect at CAMHS?
When you first come to CAMHS you may feel nervous about your appointment that’s normal, but we will do our best to make you feel comfortable and to move at a pace that suits you.
Most young people find that talking and trying out different solutions to their problems helps them. Some young people also need medication.
Coming to CAMHS does not mean you’re ‘mental’, ‘strange’ or ‘different’. In fact, 1 in 10 young people has a diagnosable mental health disorder and 1 in 4 people overall in the UK struggles with poor mental health.
