They can provide you with an alarm that lets you call for help quickly and easily if you fall, feel unwell or need any other urgent assistance.

The Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and the Community CAMHS team work closely together to support children and young people with emotional and mental health needs. In Brighton & Hove there is one point of referral which covers both teams.
