Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services - also known as CAMHS - support children and young people up to age 18 with their emotional and mental health and wellbeing.
When we talk about your mental health, we mean how you feel and how you cope with the things going on in your life. This could be connected to anything from school, your friends or even your family life. If you feel you aren’t coping too well with the ups and downs of life, it may be that you need some support to help you manage them better.

If you do need help, CAMHS will work together with you and your family to decide what support you need to have good mental health and wellbeing. Our aim is to help young people get the support they need to tackle any problems early on before they get worse, and to act quickly if they do.
North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Warrington Council, local schools, school nurses, social services and other local organisations including Kooth and St Joseph’s Family Centre, all work closely together to provide CAMHS services across Warrington, to make sure you can access the right support, in the right place and at the right time....more
