Bolton's Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services 

NHS Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been talking to children and young people and their parents or carers who are or have used mental health services in Bolton. These services are often known as ‘CAMHS’, which stands for Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services.

CAMHS provide assessment and treatment for children, young people (under 18 years of age) and their families/carers. These services get involved when serious mental health problems are affecting, or are likely to affect, a child or young person’s emotional or psychological development, and where it’s having a real impact on their life. 

We are currently reviewing the services to be provided for Bolton, including which organisation should provide them. Thank you to everyone who gave their views. The feedback is now being analysed and everyone who took part will be updated shortly.
