Who are CAMHs?

Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) are an NHS, nationwide service.

CAMHS provides assessment and treatment or intervention for children and young people up to their 18th birthday who are experiencing mental health problems, with the aim of positive mental health promotion.

If you believe your child needs support from CAMHS, please contact one of the school pastoral team. If you would prefer to contact CAMHS directly, CAMHS across Teesside has a single point contact number for you to speak to a member of the CAMHS team and discuss your concerns: 0300 2000 000.

Park End Primary School work closely with CAMHS. We have an excellent relationship with the service, and encourge parents to discuss any concerns with school prior to contacting CAMHs directly, to allow school to advise on appropriate next steps.

Different teams with CAMHs

CAMHS crisis team:

CAMHS offer 24/7 crisis telephone line support for children/young people in mental health crisis.

Call 08000 516171 or visit the website at CAMHS crisis and liaison service.

Generic CAMHs:

The generic CAMHs team are the appropriate place to seek support for mental health difficulties, which are not at crisis level but higher than could be supported by the school or GP.

CAMHs Neuro team:

The neurodiversity team within CAMHs offer assessments for ADHD or Autism.

The process for a referral to the neuro team is:

  • Discussion with school SENDCo about concerns
  • If school are in agreement, school will arrange a telephone triage call with the CAMHs neuro team to discuss the concerns
  • The CAMHs neuro team will advise school if there is enough evidence to move forward to an assessment or not
  • If yes, referral forms must be completed by home and school and sent to the neuro team by school. CAMHs will begin their assessment pathway once the forms are complete
  • If no, advice will be given and shared with parents
