Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) is used as a term for all services that work with children and young people who have difficulties with their emotional or behavioural wellbeing. They may need help with a wide range of issues at different points in their lives. Parents and carers may also need help and advice to deal with behavioural or other problems their child is experiencing. Parents, carers and young people can receive direct support through CAMHS.
