Where can I find help with mental health problems for young people?

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (or CAMHS) is a service that works with children and young people (and their families) up to the age of 16 when they have problems which have a serious effect on their daily life – this can include things like anxiety, depression, eating difficulties and coping with traumatic experiences.
