We have launched a new mental health helpline for children and young people in Bath, North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire during COVID-19. 

If you are already open to CAMHS, please contact your local base as usual, using the contact numbers in the contact us section. 

If you are not open to CAMHS and have a concern about a child or young person’s mental health, please phone 01865 903 777 between 9am and 5pm on weekdays.

For urgent issues out of hours (which do not require a 999 emergency response) please phone 01865 901 000.

Support for under-18s

If you’re worried about something, talk to an adult that you trust as soon as possible.

This could be:

  • Someone in your family, like your mum, dad or carer
  • Someone at school, like a teacher or Place2Be (if you have it in your school)
  • Your doctor.

I’m worried about my child or young person

If their life is in immediate danger, call 999.

If not, we recommend talking to someone who can help you understand what they might be going through and refer you to support in your area.
