Buckinghamshire CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health service)

Bucks CAMHS are specialist mental health services for children and young people provided by the NHS.

Young people can self-refer themselves from age 14 and the service is more than happy to take referrals from parents, teachers, health professionals, social workers or youth workers.

Referrals can be made in 2 ways:

  1. Calling the SPA telephone line 01865 901951, 8am-6pm Monday-Fridays or
  2. An e-referral which is available on the recently updated CAMHS website.

If a parent or teacher would just like advice about a young person, but are not sure that they need a referral, they can call the SPA telephone line to discuss their concerns.
