CAMHS Live is here to help you access the mental health services you might need.
You can speak to us live and online Monday-Friday, 10am-4.30pm


Young people 13 years and older and parents or carers wanting advice and information about emotional wellbeing and mental health services.


We talk with you online, without judgement, to understand your worries, questions or issues.

We can help you find the right kind of help you need and help you access it in the best way for you. If you need to be referred for further support, we can talk to you online or on the phone to make that happen.


If we are offline help is still availble, you can contact CHILDLINE or the SAMARITANS. Did you know you can also text a school nurse? Find out more here.


All live chats at are secure with end to end encryption provided by a digital certificate and meet NHS Information Governance Standards. We can chat online confidentially with you if you are 13 years or over and you do not need to give us your name if do not wish to do so. We will not share any information outside of the chat.

If we jointly agree to refer you to a service, we will need your permission to take your personal information. We may do this more easily, with your agreement, over the phone. Either we can call you at an agreed time (between 10am - 4.30pm) or you are welcome to call us. We will share our direct dial number with you at the time of making any referrals. The only time we would break complete confidentiality is if we were worried about immediate physical safety, which we would discuss with you at that point.
