Wiltshire CAMHS Online Referral (including Self-Referral)

In Wiltshire, parent carers and young people can now ‘self-refer’ to the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service using an online referrals form, located [here]. To help you with your referral, the flyer below shows you the information you will be asked for during the online process. The service will look at the referral and identify the help needed. It may also work with other organisations to get a child/ young person the help and support they require.


For emergency referrals (where a child poses an immediate danger to themselves or others) please follow the emergency advice at the bottom of the poster below.

In Wiltshire Parent Carer Council’s CAMHS Consultations and Survey that took place in April/ May 2017, parent carers said self-referral by children/ young people, and referral by parent carers, was one of the points they liked about the new CAMHS service model. They felt it was a real strength as it would help to ease stigma attached to mental health and reduce the need for a ‘middle man’. Parent carers are welcome to send WPCC feedback on services at any time. Further details on how to do this can be found here.
