Service Outline

We are a service for children, young people and their families where there are concerns about mental health and emotional well-being.

There are two CAMHS teams based in North Derbyshire. The Chesterfield and North Derbyshire team is based on the 2nd floor of The Den at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

The High Peak and Dales team is based at Newspring House, Bath Road, Buxton.

Many children and young people go through difficult times. It is a normal part of growing up. Most of these children never need the services provided by CAHMS. They are supported by family, friends, school and services in the community. Sometimes they need more support and help than these can offer. This is where a referral to CAMHS may be called for.

We also have a team based in The Den at Chesterfield Royal Hospital who work with children with moderate to severe learning disabilities and mental health problems. This team is known as the Learning Disability (LD) CAMHS team.
