We support young people with emotional, behavioural and mental health difficulties.
Our organisations is called Oxford Health, but don’t worry, you’re in the right place.
We provide physical, mental health and social care for people of all ages across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Swindon, Wiltshire, Bath and North East Somerset.
You can make a referral for yourself or someone you care for in a number of ways, depending on where you live.
We are anticipating that there may be temporary disruption to our Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services across all regions as a result of the impact of Coronavirus. Our priority is to minimise disruption as much as possible and to keep you updated and informed of any changes to service delivery.
If you are currently open to CAMHS or making a referral, please be aware of the following:
It is very important that you do not attend appointments if the guidelines instruct you to self-isolate or if you, or your household, have symptoms of COVID-19.
Please contact us by phone (see our contact us section for your area) and avoid sending us paper referrals as these may not be being checked regularly.
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.
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
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.
We are committed to providing services that are accessible to everyone.
Different people have different needs and we will always do whatever we can to make sure that these needs are met.
We are not allowing visitors to any of our hospital or inpatient sites in order to protect our patients and staff who care for them from the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).
This is with effect from Monday 23 March 2020 until further notice.
