How to refer / get help
We offer help to young people with complex, severe or enduring emotional and mental health problems. We support young people who are aged between 5-18 years of age and who are registered with a Sandwell GP.
We accept referrals from these types of professionals:
- Social Workers
- Health Visitors
- School Professionals
- Paediatricians / Hospital Doctors
- Paediatric Occupational Therapists
- Specialist Nurses
- School Nurses
The most common way of getting support in CAMHS is by visiting your GP and discussing a CAMHS referral with them. If you have any questions about this, or you are a referrer considering referring a young person, you are welcome to talk to our point of access team for emotional and mental health on (0121) 569 2611. Unfortunately, we don’t accept self-referrals from young people or families, but we are working on this!
