PLEASE NOTE YOU CANNOT SELF REFER TO THIS SERVICE - YOU NEED TO CONTACT YOUR GP OR ANOTHER PROFESSIONAL AND ASK THEM TO MAKE A REFERRAL
We offer specialist mental health services to children and young people (up to age 18 years) and their families who live in the Southern Health and Social Care Trust.
We recognise that growing up can be stressful and worrisome at times. Feeling sad, lonely, worried, angry, frightened or feeling that nobody understands you, are common feelings. We also know children, young people and families can become unwell at times.
All CAMHS referrals are initially received and triaged by our Clinical Referral Coordinators. Their role is to ensure that each young person is seen by the correct service based on the description of their needs provided in the referral letter/form. The referral coordinators may contact you to discuss a case. They will direct your referral to the right team within CAMHS eg Tier 2, Tier 3, Eating Disorders. They will also advise if an alternative agency would be more appropriate for the young person being referred.
In addition to arranging for a young person to be seen for assessment in CAMHS, the Referral Coordinators can also arrange for a professional Consultation with CAMHS staff. Our referral coordinators are based at Bocombra Lodge in Portadown but deal with all referrals into CAMHS across the Southern Trust area.
