Havering CAMHS

Havering CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) offers help to children and young people who are experiencing emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties. The services are available to families with 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.

Need help and support? Visit our 'Find Help' section to find relevant services and resources for you here.
