Children and Young People's Services (CAMHS) - Sunderland

The Community Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CCAMHS) is a team of professionals who offer support and advice to aid mental health promotion and positive well-being.

Our service works with children and young people aged 0-18 who may be showing signs of behavioural difficulties and/or emotional distress. Difficulties we may be able to help with include :-

  • Worries/Anxieties
  • Low Mood
  • Controlling Anger
  • Bereavement/Loss
  • Bullying
  • Eating
  • Self-Harm
  • Relationship Problems

Community CAMHS aim to deal with such difficulties at the earliest possible stage of intervention in the hope that children and young people will develop skills and resilience to promote positive well-being, thus minimising the risk of further distress.

We have excellent links with schools, GP’s, health Visitors, school nurses and other specialist services. We also form part of a larger group of professionals who specialise in child and adolescent mental health.
