About Us

Child and Youth Mental Health Service (CYMHS) helps children and young people up to the age of 18 and their families who have complex mental health needs. Many CYMHS clients are struggling with anxiety, depression, their attachment-relationships, eating disorders, school refusal, psychosis, suicidal and/or self-harming behaviours and/or trauma. This struggle has usually impacted on their development, close relationships, activities, education or work.

Child and Youth Mental Health Service clinicians specialise in child, adolescent and family mental health and development. We will involve you in decision making, keep you informed, ask for your input, offer you choices and respect your privacy and need for confidentiality. By working together, we will support you to get back on track.
