Do you have experience of accessing mental health services for a child or young person?

Your local CHC is focusing on mental health services for children and young people. If you have had experience, please get in touch.

The Aneurin Bevan Community Health Council is the independent NHS Watchdog, acting as the eyes and ears of patients and the public.

The Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) has previously been criticised; predominantly for the length of time children and young people have had to wait before accessing the service. Changes have been made to the referral process and with the Welsh Government prioritising the mental health of children and young people with additional funding; we would like to understand whether the situation has improved.

We are seeking views on the experience of accessing CAMHS and would appreciate it if people who have accessed, or tried to access, the service for their children could complete a short survey. The feedback will be anonymous and used to improve the services offered.


The online survey can be accessed here:


Or by texting ABCHC CAHMS to 62277


The survey can also be obtained by emailing:


Or can be completed over the phone by ringing:
