The Liverpool CAMHS offer aims to promote the mental health, emotional and wellbeing of all children, young people and their families/carers.
We work with families and professionals to develop their skills and strengths; helping them to manage children and young people’s distress and the impact this may have on the child, young person and the family.
Working alongside children and young people, we aim to improve access to services that provide vital support to build resilience, as well as offering help and intervention, enabling children and young people to thrive.
