The team’s purpose is to engage with the child or young person, their families and carers throughout the assessment process to enhance their understanding of their behaviour and other symptoms.
Appropriate interventions and treatments are then identified, along with support through the intervention phase.
Make sure you also ask about non-NHS support like local youth counselling, charities or school programmes.
all Children’s and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) across Southend, Essex and Thurrock are provided by NELFT NHS Foundation Trust under the title: Emotional wellbeing and mental health service (EWMHS).
CAMHS support covers depression, problems with food, self-harm, abuse, violence or anger, bipolar, schizophrenia and anxiety, to name a few.
If you're being supported by social care, a youth offending team or a service at your school, they might also be able to refer you.
It's important to tell the person referring you as much as you can so you can get the help you need.
Most CAMHS have a website where you can look up how to get access to their service.
