Welcome to the Islington CAMHS website. CAMHS stands for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. We are part of Whittington Health and our aim is to support the emotional health and wellbeing of children, young people and families in Islington.

The children and young people we see might be struggling with relationships at home, with peers or with teachers; they may have suffered from bereavement, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, stress or worries. Some young people might have more serious issues such as eating disorders, self-harm, depression or even suicidal thoughts. Some may be at risk of exclusion from school.

We are a multi-disciplinary team of mental health professionals, and work closely with other children’s services (schools, Social Care, Youth Offending and Safeguarding teams and community groups) to support children and young people.
