The CAMHS Mentoring Project matches volunteers on a one-to-one basis with current Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) users. The pair meet regularly to access community activities together and build a relationship. Volunteer mentors are someone the service user can have fun with, try new things with, and talk to for informal pastoral support.

If you are over 25, please get in touch with Isobel Mdudu on email@example.com or 020 3228 3978 to find out more about our Community Befriender roles supporting adult service users. We currently cannot facilitate volunteering with CAMHS inpatient settings.
If you are a service user interested in being supported by a mentor, please talk to someone in your CAMHS team who can explore this with you.
