While a new website is developed for the new emotional wellbeing and mental health service, we are keeping the Mindsight Surrey CAMHS service information available. This page may therefore contain incomplete or out of date information and may not reflect the new service. Find out more.

Crisis Intervention

In the case of crisis, professionals can make a referral to our CAMHS Single Point of Access on 0300 222 5755, 8am-8pm Monday – Friday, 9am-12pm Saturday.

There is also a free 24/7 mental health crisis line for children, young people and their families who are in crisis. They can call 0800 915 4644 to talk with a trained call handler who will provide advice, support and signposting to a range of community services. It’s open all day and all night, seven days a week.

The crisis line is available for children and young people from the age of six. It can be used by those who are already receiving mental health services, and also by those who are not. No formal request for support is needed.

Children and young people between 10-18 years old can also drop in to one of the CYP Havens. For more information please visit: www.cyphaven.net.

Below you will see more of our Mindsight Surrey CAMHS Crisis support services available:

Our CAMHS Crisis Intervention Service provides specialist assessment for children and young people in crisis presenting at any of Surrey's general hospitals or who are referred directly to the service by their local CAMHS practitioner, health or social care professional.

The CYP Haven is a safe space where you can talk about worries and mental health in a confidential, friendly and supportive environment.

The Extended Hope Assessment and Support Service aims to support young people facing emotional and mental health crisis outside of normal office hours or requiring, following assessment, a respite/crisis bed at Hope House for up to 7 days. It is staffed by community psychiatric nurses who will undertake mental health assessments of young people and can offer support to that young person and their family/carer.

The service operates between the hours of 5-11 pm, 7 days a week and can be accessed through the emergency duty team on 01483 517898.

The Hope Service is a multi-agency service for young people aged 11-18 who are experiencing complex mental health, emotional, social and behavioural needs.
