Children and Young Peoples Services (CAMHS) - Northumberland

Our Primary Mental Health Work service is an early intervention and prevention service providing support and advice for children and young people up to the age of 18 and their families and carers.

We support children and young people experiencing a range of emotional wellbeing and mental health problems such as:

  • Anxiety including panic, social anxiety and phobias
  • Habitual behaviours of an obsessive compulsive nature
  • Low mood and depression
  • Managing emotions and anger
  • Poor body image
  • Self-harm
  • Difficulty in adjusting to traumatic life events including parental separation, bereavement and bullying
  • Behavioural issues

Young people come and see us when the above issues are moderate in nature, the issue has not been resolved following initial help at school or at home, and when it is having a significant impact on their day to day life.

In Northumberland our Primary Mental Health Work (PMHW) service is also involved in improving mental health support in schools as part of the Be you programme.
