Private CAMHS: specialised mental health treatment, therapy and support for children and teens

Growing up is a unique journey, often marked by emotional ups and downs. For parents and caregivers, distinguishing between typical behaviour and signs of a potential mental health condition in a child can be a complex task. Knowing when specialised help and support are needed is crucial.

At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, we understand the complexities of youth mental health. Our Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) offer unwavering support and effective treatments for young individuals grappling with a wide spectrum of mental health conditions.

What is CAMHS?

CAMHS, which stands for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, provides essential support and treatment to young individuals facing various mental health challenges. Another term commonly used for services assisting young people is CYPMHS, representing Children and Young People's Mental Health Services.

At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, we're committed to supporting children, teenagers and young individuals with a variety of mental health conditions. If you believe your child or teen may benefit from our services, please don't hesitate to reach out. We're here to help you every step of the way.

How we address the unique mental health needs of children and teens

Childhood and adolescence encompass a world of highs and lows. Young individuals navigate a diverse range of challenges, from academic pressures and peer dynamics to family dynamics, bullying, cyberbullying, the influence of social media, peer pressure, questions about sexuality, and the transformations of puberty. It's not uncommon for young people to grapple with emotional struggles or engage in unhealthy behaviours.

In some cases, these challenges can evolve into persistent mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, and eating disorders.

Our private child and teen mental health specialists at Schoen Clinic Chelsea have extensive experience in addressing the unique needs of young people. We're dedicated to guiding them toward healthier, happier lives. Whether it's providing support for anxiety, depression, stress, or eating disorders, our specialised services offer a path to healing, recovery and overall better wellbeing.
