community staff

Welcome to the Community CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) Teams.

Our two teams see young people up to the age of 18 who have difficulties that are seriously impacting on their mental health and emotional wellbeing.

  • The Centenary Community CAMHS Team works with children, young people and families from the north and west of Sheffield. We are based at Centenary House, off Infirmary Road. We see around 1200 children a year at outpatient appointments held at Centenary House.
  • The Beighton Community CAMHS Team works with children, young people and families from the south and east of Sheffield. We are based at the Becton Centre for Children and Young People. We see around 1000 children a year in outpatient appointments at the Becton Centre.

Parent Support Group

Support group meetings are held every month for parents and carers whose children are supported by Sheffield Community CAMHS teams.

The meetings are parent-led and offer the chance to let off steam over a cup of tea and a slice of cake in an open and friendly environment.

Meetings take place from 10-11am at the Becton Centre in Beighton and Centenary House in Upperthorpe. Dates for 2017 will be published soon.

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.
