Moving on from CAMHS

As you approach your 18th birthday the professionals at your Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) will begin talking to you about the process of ‘transition’ from their service.

Some people move from CAMHS back to the care of their GP once they turn 18, while others move into adult mental health service (AMHS).

There may be other changes happening in your life at about the same time, and you can talk to CAMHS about these, and explore your next steps and the support available to you.

Please read the Moving On information leaflet (opens PDF) which will talk you through the process of transition, and enable you to take an active role with professionals in planning your transition.

You can leave feedback about how your transition from CAMHS went for you. We welcome this and will help inform our improvements.

We wish you all the best as you transition from CNWL’s CAMHS.
