Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)
Alder Hey CAMHS offers specialist services to support children and young people in Liverpool and Sefton, up to the age of 18, who are experiencing mental health difficulties. We also provide support to their families or carers.
Some of the issues that we can help with include:
- Attachment Difficulties
- Conduct/Behaviour Problems
- Eating disorders
- Emotional and Behavioural difficulties in children with Learning Disabilities
- Obsessions and Compulsions
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- More complex psychological difficulties
We also provide consultation, advice and training to other agencies and accept referrals from a wide range of professionals. The team is multi-disciplinary, which means our clinicians come from a range of clinical and professional backgrounds.
The service works with the young people, parents, carers and partner agencies to make sure that the right care is provided to each individual, depending on their needs and circumstances.
Have your say about mental health
YoungMinds are working with NHS England and NEL Commissioning Support Unit to help increase the voices of parents, carers and young people around young people’s mental health services.
They have created surveys to hear about the opportunities that currently exist for young people, parents and carers to get involved in mental health services, and what would help to build young people’s and parents’ participation across the young people’s mental health system.
