National Deaf Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)Northern ArmNewcastle, York and Manchester

National Deaf CAMHS is a highly specialised mental health service for deaf children and young people with mental health issues. The service also accepts referrals for hearing children of deaf parents (see below for who this service is for).

The service operates a team around the child and family model, employing deaf and hearing staff (including psychiatrists, psychologists, specialist deaf outreach workers, nurses, social workers and interpreters) to ensure that the child and family can work in their first or preferred language in a culturally sensitive way to address their mental health needs.

Access to this service

Families can contact the service directly for advice and information about the service but referrals must be made through a professional. This can be any professional the child, young person or family is working with and include G.P, Paediatrician, Teacher, School or Social Worker.

How we communicate with children, young people with SEND and their familiesAll staff are able to communicate in British Sign Language at different levels, but most at BSL Level 2 or higher. We employ deaf and hearing staff members, and BSL/English interpreters. We also work closely with freelance BSL/English and other language interpreters when appropriate.​
