How to refer/get help (Walsall)

Walsall CAMHS is a specialist mental health service commissioned to provide interventions to those children, young people and their families who are experiencing moderate to severe mental health difficulties.  We currently support young people up to the age of 17 with a GP registered in the Walsall area.

 

Referral Process

When an appropriate referral is received we will offer the young person a choice appointment. Choice is an opt-in screening assessment which provides the young person and family/carers to explore their mental health needs with a CAMHS clinician. At the end of this appointment it may be that a specialist  mental health service is not appropriate and we can therefore discuss alternative options and support the referral process to such services where possible. If it is felt CAMHS would be helpful we will discuss appropriate interventions and support with the young person and their family. In most cases young people are offered a period of core partnership work, which usually involves attending CAMHS for a number of sessions of individual work with an appropriate clinician. Our work aims to promote the positive mental health of children and young people in Walsall.
