Parents, carers and young people can receive direct support through CAMHS.
Specialist CAMHS are NHS mental health services that focus on the needs of children and young people.
Among CAM users, a higher percentage of women compared to men used CAM in the past 12 months (53.5% vs.
42.7%); women were more likely to use CAM in the past 12 months (AOR = 1.71, 95% CI = 1.49–1.97).
A lot of organisations have helpful information about what CAMHS services offer.

CAM use is influenced by many factors including sex [5–7].
You may also find it helpful to speak to: If you or your child is being supported by social services or the youth offending team, your key worker will be able to refer your child for an appointment with someone in specialist CAMHS.
There are many services you can go to for help without having to ask for a referral.
Transition between services can be a scary time for young people as the teams they know and are used to working with change.
It is important everyone involved understands the process and feels supported and prepared to try to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible.
