About Us

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) delivered by East London NHS Foundation Trust is part of a wider network of services that offer help and support to children and young people who have mental health difficulties and their families/carers.

There are CAMHS teams in East London – Tower Hamlets, Newham and City and Hackney – and in Bedfordshire and Luton.

We provide a service for children and young people up to 18 years old.
