CNWL CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) provides mental and emotional health specialist services for children and young people, and their families.
We provide specialist NHS services and support to children, young people, families and carers who are experiencing difficulties with their emotional, psychological and mental health. We have teams based across our five London boroughs (Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea, Brent, Harrow and Hillingdon) and in the community who can help you and your family to get the support that you need.

Westminster CAMHS Young People Participation group is back in full swing and we can’t wait to hear all of their feedback. We are so grateful for the time given by our young people!
It is feedback week at Westminster CAMHS! All young people and families should have received links from their lead clinicians on how to get involved.
Takeaway from yesterday’s Parent & Carers group: “We have to be clear ourselves to be present for others”.
Looking forward to tomorrow's Parent and Carers discussion on the topic of friendship. If your child/young person is seen by one of our CNWL CAMHS teams and would like to learn more about our weekly online drop-in group, please speak to your child's clinician/therapist.
