Who we are:

FCAMHS is a Specialist Forensic Community Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service for young people and their families working with professionals in South London. It provides advice, consultation, assessment and some limited short-term interventions. The service can also provide training for local professionals.
We are a multi-disciplinary service including Consultant Adolescent Forensic Psychiatrists and Psychologists.
Referrals are accepted from:  

  • CAMHS Tier 3 and Tier 2 services
  • Local Authorities (Children’s Social Care)
  • Youth Offending Teams
  • CAMHS Inpatient Facilities
  • Youth Justice services
  • Education

If the referrer is not from a local CAMHS team and the referral is accepted for further input after an initial discussion, the FCAMHS will usually always discuss the referral with the young person’s local CAMHS team. This will facilitate a clear joint approach to the referral from relevant mental health providers and, wherever possible, joint assessment and working would be undertaken.

Other information

As part of the NHS England evaluation we will be collecting written feedback. We also welcome verbal feedback from professionals and young people.
