Children and Young People's Mental Health Services (formerly CAMHS)

CYPMHS stands for the Children and Young People's Mental Health Service. CYPMHS provides emotional wellbeing and mental health advice and support for young people and their families across Kent.

Our service is available to young people from the age of 0-18 (or up to the age of 25 if they have special educational needs).

CYPMHS offers advice and support for stress, low mood and depression, anxiety, self-harm or difficult to manage behaviours as well as support for neurodevelopmental difficulties such as ADHD or ASD.

The way in which we offer support can differ from young person to young person as every journey is unique. We are currently leading the way with our innovations in digital support for young people and we have a number of resources available online. These are freely available and do not require a referral to our service.

For some young people their emotional well-being may be having a significant impact on their day to day life and in these cases we may offer a short period of face to face support either in 1:1 sessions or in a group.

For more information about the types of difficulties we support and the type of support offered please visit our website.
