Are you worried

about something?

Getting help when you need it

We can all feel worried, anxious and stressed about things from time to time and it is normal to feel like that. But when these feelings last for a long time you may need some extra help to cope.

  • feeling anxious and scared
  • hurting yourself or wanting to hurt yourself
  • having problems with eating and food
  • having problems at school or with friends
  • hearing voices or seeing things
  • struggling to control your behaviour or temper


If you feel like you need help right now:

We don’t have a helpline here at CAMHS but there are many services that offer help and support to young people just like you.

Talk to Childline
Contact Childline anytime. Calls are free and confidential
Call: 0800 1111

Tell someone you trust

You may find it helpful to talk to your mum, dad or carer.  If this is not possible, you may prefer to talk to someone else you can trust, like a teacher.

Talk to your GP

Your GP may be the first person you talk to about how you are feeling. Your GP may refer you to CAMHS  if they feel this will help you.



Eating disorders service

We know that young people , and their families and carers, often feel blamed and isolated when they have an eating disorder and we aim to get to know the person behind the eating disorder and draw upon family and community strengths to promote recovery.

If you are a young person or a parent you can now call the service between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday on 020 8354 8160 and ask to speak to the Duty Eating Disorders clinician who will discuss your concerns with you.
