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 is based in Codsall but the service is delivered across South Staffordshire, in local libraries or other community venues.
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.

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:
