Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service
(CAMHS) for 0-16 years

We are the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) for Blackpool. We accept referrals for children and young people up to the age of 16 who are experiencing moderate to severe mental health problems.

Although you can’t ask us for help yourself, your teachers, health care professionals and youth or social workers can get in touch with us so we can help you.

The service is made up of professionals from a range of disciplines including consultant child and adolescent psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, psychologists, counsellors, support staff and an admin team.

The service offers a range of assessments and therapeutic interventions including 1-1 work, family therapy and group work.
The team have put together an information leaflet for children and their families explaining how the service works, you can Read it Here.
