About Us

The enhanced access to CAMHS has been developed to ensure children and young people can access treatment to improve their life chances and to minimise the impact of long term health conditions. The enhanced part of the service is focused on streamlining the current access into CAMHS and the introduction of one multi-disciplinary team to assess the needs of children and young people.

The service ensures that children and young people will be triaged, signposted and navigated into other services and that early intervention is prioritised to meet their needs. The service will assess and ensure that the children and young people receive the right treatment.

Who can we support?

CAMHS sees young people from across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. The service also links with other children’s services to offer a multiagency approach. The team is made up of doctors, nurses and therapists who specialise in child mental health. The support we provide varies according to need, from a one-off appointment to a programme of ongoing care which lasts until the child or young person feels better and is felt to be safe.
