Croydon CAMHS Getting More Help Team

How our service can help you

The Croydon CAMHS Getting More Help Team (GMHT) work with children and young people up to the age of 18, who may have had previous treatments at Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) or elsewhere.

Many of the children and young people that we see have more than one clinician involved in their care, and some may also have stayed in a mental health hospital, or been seen by one of our national and specialist services.

When you start treatment with us we will work with you to set clear goals so that we can develop a useful care plan to achieve them.

We work with children, young people and their families who may need treatment over a longer period of time, and those that may need two or more different types of treatment at the same time. This might be a combination of individual therapy, family therapy, or medication.

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
Our service is made up of a number of professionals from different backgrounds who work together to provide multi-disciplinary care. This may include psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, clinical specialists, systemic family therapists, CAMHS practitioners, assistant psychologists, trainees and administrators.
