Ealing CAMHS Specialist

The majority of our specialist teams are based at Ealing CAMHS, 1 Armstrong Way, Southall, Middlesex, UB2 4SA.

Referrals should be made online using the CAMHS referral form. It’s essential that the form is completed with as much detail as possible and that the person with parental responsibility consents to the referral, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

A duty worker is available from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm to discuss potential referrals on 020 8354 8160.

Consultation provided rather than direct assessment or intervention for cases where a mental health perspective will complement work already in progress, or where there’s is professional anxiety or uncertainty as to whether referral to specialist CAMHS is appropriate.

All referrals are screened for appropriateness and urgency. Factors such as severity, duration, complexity, likelihood of response to available treatments, and likelihood of engagement may be considered. Further information may be sought from a referrer or family, if necessary. More information can be found at Child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS) referrals
