Young people and children might not want to seek out help as they might feel like they are causing a fuss or that they might get into trouble, they might even feel that telling someone will only make their problems worse. If they don’t speak up they often display signs that they are suffering with mental health issues and require professional help.
Signs such as:
A doctor, social worker or school nurse can offer further support, and if they believe CAMHS is a suitable service, they will send a referral.

We help those under 18 years of age who are struggling with emotional/mental health problems, although those under the age of 5 years will be individually considered. To achieve the best information possible, we require that the referral is made by the professional with the most knowledge of the client problems and the family’s difficulty.
We supply support and training which highlights the signs of mental health issues to those working with young people, such as teachers and social workers.
In addition to these we also help children and young people that may need referrals to hospital and individualised specialised care.
The Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) Looked After Children team offers consultations to foster carers and any other professionals working with children who are Looked After by the East Riding of Yorkshire.
We accept referrals from social workers for Looked After Children and any requests from other professionals are always notified and discussed with the child’s social worker first. The children and young people’s emotional health needs are assessed and they can be offered therapeutic work for trauma and attachment issues by this team, or, if necessary can be referred on to specialist CAMHS. The team consists of a team leader and two play therapists.
We know that Looked After Children are more vulnerable than their peers to developing mental health issues later in life so we aim to address problems such as attachment difficulties as soon as they are identified. As these difficulties often do not meet specialist CAMHS criteria, the local authority has commissioned the CAMHS Looked After Children service. If this service is not sufficient for their needs there is a pathway through to specialist CAMHS. Currently the service is only for children who are Looked After by the East Riding and living in the East Riding or near vicinity.
We are based with the Social Services Looked After Children Team at:
Beverley Children, Young People and Family Centre
Tel: 01482 396080 ext 255
The team offers a specialist Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service provision to children and young people whose needs (usually due to risk and/or severity of presenting problems) cannot be met by core CAMHS. Intensive Intervention should be considered as an extension of the integrated Pathway Model, ensuring continuity of care for the child, young person and family and enabling an effective step-up, step-down service delivery model.
The team offers high intensity; time limited interventions, into existing care plans without duplicating services. The service aims to support the principles of a Care Programme Approach (where relevant) and reduce the gap between community CAMHS and inpatient care. It also aims to address the needs of young people and families who have worked with CAMHS for some time but change has been difficult to achieve.
The clinical activity of the Intensive Intervention Team is based on systemic principles and emphasises the importance of considering all elements of the lives of the young people we work with. Formulations place the young person’s context at the centre of understanding how presenting difficulties might be resolved, and offers opportunities for intervention that include working with families and carers, peer group, schools, colleges and places of work as appropriate. The involvement of families, carers and significant others is seen as essential and no individual work will be undertaken in isolation.
Core CAMHS provides a specialist assessment and treatment service to children and young people up to 18 years of age who are experiencing significant emotional or mental health difficulties. In practice, CAMHS involvement does not usually begin before the start of attendance at primary school but advice can be given to the parents of younger children if needed.
CAMHS has clinical care pathways in place to help with problems including depression and mood, eating difficulties, self-harming, ADHD, severe behaviour problems and psychosis.
A comprehensive range of services and interventions are available in a variety of community settings across Hull and the East Riding. A Key worker is allocated to remain with each family throughout their time with CAMHS.
Core CAMHS operates from 8am until 8pm, Monday to Saturday.
Our Child Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) crisis team covers Hull and the East Riding and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This service is for young people (under 18) who are experiencing emotional distress and are struggling to cope.
We respond to a young person’s immediate care needs offering specialist short-term help in the community. We will stay involved until there is a resolution of the immediate crisis (usually within 72 hours).
We provide a timely response, working flexibly and tailor the intervention to meet the needs of the individual.
The aim of this service is to prevent children and young people (under 18) from hospital attendance or admission if no medical intervention is required, keeping them at home with their families.
Humber NHS FT has been in early discussions with The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust to work collaboratively with the Anna Freud Centre to introduce the i-THRIVE model within Humber NHS FT CAMHS Provision.
The ambition is for Humber NHS FT to become a Community of Practice (essentially a pilot site) for the introduction of the i-THRIVE model within our CAMHS service.
