Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) - Springfield Hospital - Coronavirus

CAMHS services are still receiving referrals and treating young people during Covid-19 Crisis (some treatment will be via telephone and the internet during this difficult time).

Routine referrals continue to be via our Single Point of Access (SPA): 0203 513 6631 and ssg-tr.wandsworthCAMHSreferral@nhs.net

We have now extended our online Counselling provision via KOOTHS which is available to all Wandsworth young people. They can self-refer to this confidential service. Please visit www.kooth.com

We have now also set up a 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Mental Health Support Line for all young people in Crisis: 0800 028 8000, so you can phone during evenings and weekends as well as any other times.

Please do not go to A&E if you are in crisis, instead we have set up the Orchid Crisis Unit at Springfield Hospital, which you may be advised to attend once you have phoned the Crisis Line, above.
