The Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) provide services to children and young people living in South Staffordshire. This includes area such as Stafford, Stone, Rugeley, Cannock, Seisdon Peninsula, Lichfield, Burton, Uttoxeter, Tamworth.

All of our CAMHS teams are involved in activities that promote child and adolescent mental health. 

One activity is our young people’s forums, called “Youth Participation”. We invite all young people to get involved in shaping how we work together.  This has included young people on staff interview panels, re-designing clinic space and more.  See the Participation tab below for more information

Other activities include:

Developing links with local high schools, workshops for mental health services and schools to share ideas about better ways to support young people.

CAMHS Early Years Service

The CAMHS Early Years’ Service helps young children and their families when a child is experiencing emotional or behavioural problems.  We tend to get involved when other forms of support are not enough on their own, or when the problem is particularly difficult. 

We also offer support when difficulties are being experienced with the relationship between a parent and child.

We work with young children who aren’t old enough to be at school full time yet.  If we start seeing you before your child begins at school we may be able to carry on supporting you once your child goes to school.   However, this will depend upon the nature of the support required.

Intensive Outreach

The CAMHS Intensive Outreach Team works in a way that is responsive to the fluctuations in a young person’s mental health and risk management.

We offer intensive support to people aged between 8 and 18 years who are at risk of hospital admission or need specialist care. We also support their families/carers.

We work in the young person's community with them and their family, in a multi -disciplinary way that engages all the agencies involved in the care of that young person.

Primary Mental Health Team

The Primary Mental Health Team (PMHT) work in the Seisdon Peninsula area.

The team works with children and young people and other professionals to increase their awareness and understanding of the emotional health issues that affect young people.

This means that the teacher or other professional (e.g. school nurse or family support worker) may be able to help the young person without having to make a referral into CAMHS.

To contact PMHT contact Stafford CAMHS on telephone: 01785 221665.

 

Paediatric Psychology

The Paediatric Psychology Team only works with young people who are experiencing distress related to their physical health.

We see children and young people with a variety of health problems and/or life limiting conditions.

This includes adjusting to a new diagnosis, coping with treatments or invasive procedures, managing pain or fatigue or dealing with the family impact of physical health.

A referral is needed from a GP, paediatrician or any health professional. They should contact us at:
