Sunderland Community Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) is a team of professionals who offer support and advice to aid mental health and positive well-being.
Our service works with children and young people aged 0-18 who may be showing signs of emotional distress and/or behavioural difficulties. We aim to deal with such difficulties at the earliest possible stage of intervention in the hope that children and young people will develop skills and resilience to promote positive well-being.
