Following feedback from GPs and other system partners, Norfolk and Suffolk NHS
Foundation Trust (NSFT) is launching a new 0-18 year olds referral criteria document and referral form for its Suffolk Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
The referral criteria aims to help referrers understand who to refer, when, what for and how. It also explains more about the services our CAMHS teams provide, which include:
- Early Intervention CAMHS – supports young people with mild to moderate mental health issues and includes the Under-18 Wellbeing Team, Psychology in Schools Team and Mental Health Support Teams in schools.
- Specialist CAMHS (formerly known as Child and Family) – for those with moderate to severe mental health difficulties such as mood disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder and complex emotional needs.
The new 0-18 referral form for GPs will be available on the DXS system from 4 December. Please submit completed forms via ERS.
Before making a referral
Please check whether the young person can be signposted to support from other services that may be more appropriate to access before making a referral - like support from Kooth, the School Nursing ChatHealth Service or Health Visiting team (Under 5s), or advice from voluntry organisations who maybe able to assist or emergency support from the NHS 111 option 2 Crisis Support Line.

- Pre-school, 16-25 years, Children (5-11), Adults, Young people
