CAMHS helps with things such as anxiety, loneliness, depression, self harm, self abuse, bipolar and more.
CAMHS has various locations around the UK which cover a whole host of mental health issues. The CAMHS locations are staffed with nurses, psychologists, therapists, counsellors, social workers, support workers and other related professionals who may assist the local child and adolescent mental health services team in doing their job effectively.
To get help from the CAMHS location you will usually have to be referred but if you feel you have no one to talk to or no one you can trust with the issues you are facing you can always approach CAMHS yourself and get the help you need.
