What we help with

What is mental health?

Mental health is the way we think and feel. We all go through times when we feel worried, confused or down.

Mental health problems are when difficulties get in the way of how we think and feel.

This can mean that we find it hard to cope with family life, relationships, school or the wider world.

Feelings and symptoms

Everyone experiences anxiety or feeling down, but when these problems don’t go away you may need some extra support. 

Mental health conditions include such things as depression, anxiety and eating disorders. 

We can help you deal with these difficulties

What happens at CAMHS?

CAMHS is made up of doctors, nurses and other medical staff.

These people are trained to help children, young people and their families who are experiencing mental health difficulties.  

At CAMHS, we will work together with you to help you find the right kind of support.  


We have lots of useful leaflets and posters about our CAMHS services available for download on our website.

On our Oxon/Bucks CAMHS eating disorder site you will find information for young people, families and professionals, where there is concern that a young person may have an eating disorder.
