 ‘Every Child and Young Person in the Rother Valley Matters’

A pupil may be referred to Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHs), usually via the GP, if there are concerns with social, emotional or behavioural development, including Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). CAMHs will often consult with parents and the school via a questionnaire before deciding whether to offer an initial ‘choice’ appointment. This may or may not be followed by CAMHs accepting the referral.

Courses are also run by CAMHs at Meadowfield, Swandean Hospital, Worthing for professionals on ASC, Attachment, ADHD, Eating Disorders, Self Harm, Challenging Behaviour and Loss & Adjustment.
