Here are some examples of local organisations in Kensington & Chelsea that you and your family might find useful. These are not CAMHS services and are therefore run independently from CAMHS.
Central London Youth Development
Working with children and young people from diverse communities. A range of programmes available, including mentoring and supplementary education.
Our School Health Service supports the physical and mental health of children and young people aged five to 19 who live in Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster. The service also offers a valuable link between health and education settings. As a service, we work in close partnership with parents, carers, schools, colleges, GPs, health visitors, safeguarding services and other agencies to promote the good health and wellbeing of school-aged children and young people.
Our team is made up of school nurses, staff nurses, school health technicians, a specialist CAMHS nurse (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services) and specialist sex and relationship workers.
On the website you can find lots of information about health and wellbeing. You can also find out who your school nurse is and contact them directly to ask them a question.
Kensington and Chelsea Mind is a mental health charity aimed at providing you with mental health information, support (including peers support, videos, community networks and helplines) and sign-posting to many other helpful resources – local and national.
