Primary CAMHS or PCAMHS provides flexible, short term support to children and young people to suit your needs. PCAMHS tends to work with the type of difficulties that can be sorted out more easily and quickly e.g. seeing someone for six sessions to think about difficult emotions and how to deal with them. We can meet with you at CAMHS, at home, at school or in the community. Sometimes we might identify other services that can help you.
Both Community CAMHS and PCAMHS help with the sort of mental health issues that you aren’t able to sort out on your own or with the help of adults working with you (e.g. your G.P. or school nurse).
