How to access the service

The child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) across County Durham and Darlington has a single point of access for referrals and self-referrals to CAMHS services. To contact the team please email tewv.camhscountydurhamdarlington@nhs.net or call 0300 1239296.

Most children and young people are referred to the service by GPs but referrals are accepted from other health professionals, health visitors, school nurses/counsellors, social services, voluntary services or other services working with children and young people.

When a referral is received, an appointment with the team will be sent out and in some circumstances a member of the team may telephone prior to an appointment being made.

The team aims to see the patient as soon as possible, however the wait should be no more than four weeks for an initial appointment.
