Mental Health

Child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS)

The community based Havering child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS) offers help to young people from birth up to the age of 18 who are experiencing emotional, behavioural and mental health difficulties.

The Havering CAMHS team is based in a local clinic and offers various support such as assessment of development problems, autism, hyperactivity, depression, and early onset psychosis and brief interventions. The team also offers support to families and carers.

During a child or young person’s development, there may be periods when they or their family’s ability to cope with difficult emotions or behaviour can put extreme pressures on relationships. We work with children and young people as early on as possible during these difficulties to turn the situation around.
