In many areas in the country these services are known as CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services).

ELCAS is a specialist service which means that you can’t just ring up and ask for an appointment. Referrals can be made by other people who have already met you and think that ELCAS might be able to help.

Those people include:

  • Your GP (family doctor)
  • Social Worker
  • Paediatrician (Specialist Children’s Doctor)
  • School with a supporting CAF Common Assessment Framework (CAF)
