Croydon CAMHS Getting Help Team

How our service can help you

The Croydon CAMHS Getting Help Team provides a safe, effective, responsive service where staff involve and treat children, young people and their families with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect.

Our service is for children, young people and their families that have had an initial assessment with the Getting Advice Team and require further help.

During the assessment with the Getting Advice Team, the care pathway and treatment plan will be agreed with the family and recorded. If we feel that further help is needed after assessment, we will add the young person to the treatment waiting list for the Getting Help Team.

Treatment with us ranges from short to long term, and may involve face to face sessions, and indirect work with the parent, carer or professional from another agency. We may also refer you to another agency, specialist service, help you with access to another CAMHS service, or mental health promotion and mental health education service if needed.

We will always keep young person, their family, GP and the referrer informed of the outcome of the assessment, treatment and care plan. A closing summary will also be sent to all parties at the end of the spell of care.

All referrals must be made by a professional associated with the child's care via the Croydon Single Point of Contact (SPOC) webpage .

Referrals can be made by a GP, paediatrician, school teacher, or social worker. Our team is unable to accept referrals from parents, carers, or self-referrals by the child or young person.

Our team members
