CAMHS stands for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. CAMHS are specialist NHS services. Pen-y-Cwm school have a link with the specialist CAMHS Learning Disability Team.
We offer a range of services for children and adolescents aged four to eighteen, with a moderate to severe learning disability [and associated co-morbid disorders].
They offer assessment and treatment when children and young people have emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties.
Children and young people and their families can be referred to CAMHS if children are finding it hard to cope with family life, school or the wider world. If these difficulties are too much for family, friends or GPs to help with, CAMHS may be able to assist.
