Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services - Bolton

 Content Editor ‭[1]‬

Who we are
Our Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services - also known as CAMHS - work with young people with emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties, and their families.

The service is delivered in partnership with Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust.

Who is our service for?
Our service is for young people up to the age of 18 who have emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties which are causing difficulties in their school, family or social life. 

How to access our service
CAMHS is a specialist service, which means that referrals need to be made by someone who has met you and thinks that CAMHS might be able to help. That person might be your GP, health visitor, school health advisor, social worker or a paediatrician (a specialist children's doctor).

Once we receive your referral, we get in touch with you as soon as possible to let you know whether we think we can help and to offer you an appointment with our team.

If you think you would benefit from support from CAMHS, make an appointment to see your GP, who will be able to make a referral to our service for you if they think we could help.  

Where else do we provide the service?
We also provide child and adolescent mental health services across Halton, Knowsley, St Helens and Warrington.

Practical information
Our Bolton CAMHS Team is based at the Royal Bolton Hospital on Minerva Road in Bolton. The hospital has a number of facilities for staff, visitors and patients including plenty of car parking.
