Barking and Dagenham

The emotional wellbeing and mental health services (also known as CAMHS) delivers a range of services to support positive emotional wellbeing, behavioural and mental health difficulties for children and young people in Barking and Dagenham. The services are available to children & young people from birth to their 18th birthday.

We are a multi-disciplinary team based in a local clinic and offer support in a variety of areas such as assessment of development problems, autism, hyperactivity, depression, and early onset psychosis. 

During a child or young person’s development, there may be periods when they or their family’s ability to cope with difficult emotions or behaviour can put extreme pressures on relationships. We want to work with children and young people as early on as possible during these difficulties in order to turn the situation around.
