Rotherham Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) provides mental health assessments, therapy and interventions for children, young people up to the age of 18 years and their families or identified carers when children and young people are experiencing emotional or mental health difficulties.
We are a multi-disciplinary team of professionals based at Kimberworth Place, Kimberworth Road, Rotherham, S61 1HE. We provide assessment and interventions for young people and their families to help them gain an understanding of their difficulties and to find ways on how to manage, improve, and reduce the impact of their difficulties in their everyday lives.
Mental health conditions we typically see are:
- Anxiety disorders
- Depression/low mood
- Bipolar disorder
- Obsessive-compulsive disorders
- Eating disorders
- Self-harm / suicidal thoughts
- Neurological-developmental disorders where an assessment is required, for example Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Learning disabilities (with mental health presentation).
Rotherham CAMHS provides a range of interventions as identified by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence guidelines to address the identified needs of each child, young person or family. This could include individual, group therapies, family work, medication were indicated, inpatient care if required, joint working or providing support to other agencies in a consultative manner.
