CAMHS stands for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. They have teams in Dorset called community teams (also known as Core-CAMHS) and an inpatient team at Pebble Lodge in Bournemouth.

They assess and treat children and young people up the age of 18 who are suffering significant mental difficulties. CAMHS also support families and carers who need advice or help. They provide these services across Dorset (including Bournemouth and Poole), employing an experienced team of doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists and social workers.

They can help with a range of serious mental health problems, including:

  • significant self harm and risk-taking behaviours
  • depression and severe anxiety disorders
  • obsessive-compulsive disorders
  • complex and/or significant post-traumatic disorders
  • severe behavioural difficulties
  • mental health or severe emotional difficulties in children with a diagnosis of Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome
  • psychosis
