24/7 service

Available to all ages

The CAMHS Hub is now an integrated service, offering support to all ages via our Crisis Care Centre Team.

Our vision is to improve outcomes for children and young people through the provision of evidence-based care across a wide range of services, delivered by a highly trained and well supported workforce.

We aim for high quality, choice, flexible access and the inclusion of children, young people and their families or carers in the development and delivery of our services.

We offer specialist mental health services to children and young people (up to 18 years) and their families. We recognise that growing up can be stressful and worrisome at times. Feeling sad, lonely, worried, angry, frightened or feelings that nobody understands you are common feelings. We also know that children, young people and their families can become unwell at times. Use the links on our website to find out more about our service.

The CAMHS service is made up of multi-disciplinary teams staffed by social workers, mental health nurses, therapists, clinical psychologists, mental health practitioners and child and adolescent psychiatrists. They work with parents and children to promote the development of children and young people so they can flourish at home and when they get to school.

Services available are for children, young people and their families/carers who have concerns about mental health, behaviour or emotional wellbeing.

Youth Council

Since being formed in 2014, the North Staffordshire Children and Young People’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Youth Council has had a real influence on how mental health services are shaped and delivered in the area.

Council Chair Jaymee Smith explains more about what the council has been up to and what its ambitions are for the future.
