What is CAMHS?

CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health services) is for children and young people aged 0-18. We help them and their families with emotional, relationship and behavioural difficulties when they are finding it hard to cope with family life, school or the wider world.

The NHS provides CAMHS across all of the UK. This website contains details of all the CAMHS services across Brent, Harrow, Hillingdon, Kensington & Chelsea, Westminster, and Milton Keynes. If you read anything that isn’t clear, please get in touch with your local service for more information.

Who goes to CAMHS?

Around 2,500 children see CAMHS in England, every year.

One in 10 children and young people aged five to 16 experiences a mental health problem. That works out as around three young people in every class at school.
