Celebrating the launch of the new Specialist CAMHS website!

SCAMHS website

A new service is available to young people across Gwent struggling with their mental health and emotional well-being.

ABUHB Specialist CAMHS has launched a new website that will aim to help people understand more about the services available to young people across Gwent struggling with their mental health and emotional well-being.  The website features a wealth of information suitable for young people themselves, parents and carers, and professionals working with children and young people.

Services users can find out detailed information about S-CAMHS and what happens when you are referred.  The website has been designed to reassure young people and reduce any anxiety they may be feeling, with information on:

  • how to make a referral to S-CAMHS services through SPACE Well-being in each local area of Gwent;
  • find out what will happen at every stage of the referral process;
  • what it’s like coming to an S-CAMHS appointment and what you sessions may involve;
  • self-help to support young people to understand and manage their health and well-being;
  • what the different people who work in SCAMHS do, from psychiatrists and psychologists, to nurses, administrators and more
  • support and advice on a wide range of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self-harm and difficult life pressures.
