Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)

Parents/carers or the young person themselves can now self-refer into CAMHS for support with their mental health.

Many, but not all, of our local schools have signed up to the ‘Mental Health Support in Schools’ scheme’. Those schools can also refer young people into CAMHS. Participating schools include: Albany Infant & Nursery, Albany Juniors, Alderman Pounder Infant & Nursery, Bramcote Church of England Primary, Bramcote College, Bramcote Hills Primary, Beeston Fields Primary & Nursery, Chilwell School, Greasley Beauvale Primary, Hall Park Academy, John Clifford Primary, Lawrence View Primary & Nursery, Priory Catholic Voluntary Academy, Round Hill Primary, St John’s Church of England Primary, Springbank Primary & Nursery, Sunnyside Spencer Academy Primary & Nursery, The Alderman White, The Florence Nightingale Academy, The Lanes Primary (2 sites), Trowell Church of England Primary, Wadsworth Field Primary.

Self-referral to CAMHS can be made using this form no matter which school the young person attends by the parent/ carer or directly from the young person themself. If the young person’s school is not part of the scheme, they may be offered an alternative service if referred by the school.
