How to access CAMHS services
The services offer an open referral system and accept self-referrals.
One number accesses all CAMHS services in Tees.
The service accepts referrals directly from young people or their carer, however this may not always lead to a face to face assessment and is dependent on presentation and information provided
Any health or social care professional (e.g. GP, health visitor, social worker, etc) can refer a person to the Service, however, they must have seen the service user within the previous 24 hours.
Referrals may also be made from acute hospitals and in-patient services to facilitate early discharge. Where this is a mental health hospital this will be planned in conjunction with the young person’s locality team and appointed care co-ordinator
