Summary:
The Croydon CAMHS Mental Health Support Team (MHST) offers early intervention support to children and young people who are experiencing mild to moderate mental health issues. We can help with issues such as exam stress, behavioural difficulties, low mood, anxiety, and friendship problems. We can also help those with more severe needs to access the right support.

Our team of Education Wellbeing Practitioners offer guided self-help over several sessions for anxiety, low-mood, or challenging behaviour. This can be face to face, telephone or online.

We see children, young people, and parents in educational settings, as well as offering assessment and screening in order to make specialist referrals to other services and agencies. These can include screening for Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), or more severe problems.

We also offer training for teaching staff on a variety of topics and can run small groups, and workshops both live and recorded. 

We run an Emotional Wellbeing Helpline for children, young people or parents needing support. Our helpline is also open to school staff who would like to make enquiries or talk about a pupil they are concerned about.

Emotional Wellbeing Helpline - 07702 339000 Monday to Friday from 9am to 3.30pm.

Our team members
Our service is made up of a number of professionals from different backgrounds who work together to provide multi-disciplinary care. This may include CAMHS practitioners, mental health nurses, CBT Therapists, occupational therapists, and education wellbeing practitioners.
