About CAMHS

CAMHS stands for 'Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services'. CAMHS teams assess and treat children and young
people who present with mild, moderate or severe and complex concerns which are having a significant impact on a their development and are causing them and/or their carers distress.

We focus on behaviours which indicate moderate to severe mental health
and development needs that are causing the child or young person's functioning to deteriorate and problems to escalate. These difficulties may be having a significant impact on the child or young person’s development quality of life.

The conditions we treat include:

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorders
  • Depressive disorders
  • Deliberate self harm
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Post traumatic syndromes
  • Severe behavioural problems

People using our service must be under the age of 18 and registered with a GP based in Surrey.
