CAMHS

In an emergency – If you or someone else has seriously injured themselves, taken an overdose or are on the point of doing so

What is a referral?

Referral means “to send someone for consultation, review, or further action.”

A GP directing a patient to a medical specialist.

Need help fast

The person you speak to will ask you some questions about how you are feeling before deciding what to do next. 

Contact your GP

You can also ask your GP practice for an urgent appointment during opening hours.

Speak to a trusted adult

Let someone know how you are feeling. A parent or carer is often the best person, but you could also speak to your school nurse, a teacher or another trusted adult.

If you are already using CAMHS, contact us directly during office hours (9am – 5pm).  We will talk to you about how best to meet your needs.
