Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)

Becton Centre

Our Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) treats children and young people with a range of difficulties that are seriously impacting on their mental health and emotional wellbeing.

Patients can be seen and helped in a number of ways from consultations through to staying at our state-of-the-art inpatient facilities. We also have a 24 hour, seven-day-a-week psychiatric on-call service.

Epic Friends

The Sheffield CAMHS team developed the Epic Friends website to help young people who think their friends may have mental health problems.

The site offers advice on a range of issues including bullying, depression, anxiety, family problems, self-harm and eating disorders. It also offers guidance on when to seek help and where to go for further support.

Epic Friends was funded by The Children’s Hospital Charity.
