CAMHS stands for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services which are specialist services that provide assessment, treatment and support to young people with emotional, behavioural and mental heath difficulties. Solent CAMHS covers our sites in Portsmouth and Southampton.

We hope this website will provide young people, their families and carers with information about the kind of issues you might be dealing with, and how we can help to support you in managing them.

General information about mental health is available from the coloured menu bars at the top of the page. To see what is available in your area, click on either Portsmouth or Southampton. This site has been created for you, so please contact us if there is anything you want to know about our services.
