Sussex Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) (Brighton & Hove)

Age range:0-18 Location:Brighton & Hove Tel:

About the service

We help children and young people up to 18 years old who are experiencing emotional wellbeing or mental health issues. Many young people experience difficulties with their mental health such as anxiety, low mood, trauma, eating difficulties, plus many others which can impact on all aspects of life such as education, home life, hobbies, socialising and having fun.

Our specialist teams are trained and experienced in working with children and young people. They will work with you and your family or carer to help you understand your difficulties and identify realistic goals or changes you would like to make so that you can build your own skills, achieve your potential and get the most out of life.

At the moment, due to the coronavirus outbreak, our teams are working differently and we are asking people not to attend our clinics. We are talking directly to patients and their families about alternative arrangements, and where a face to face appointment is necessary, we will talk to families about the measures needed to help keep them, and our staff, safe.

How to access this service

If you are experiencing difficulties, it’s really important to talk to those people around you first. That way, they can make sure you get the right support that you need.

We recommend talking to us before you make a referral so that we can offer advice and guidance, and decide whether CAMHS is the right service to meet your needs. You can find all the information you need at
