Children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties

Herefordshire Council provides a range of services for children and young people who experience social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH) and those with challenging behaviour, delivered by the integrated behaviour outreach service.   Details about the the Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) inclusion service are on the Herefordshire Council website.

Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHs) provide mental health help to children, young people and their families across Herefordshire and Worcestershire. CAMHs is a collection of NHS services that specifically support children and young people between the ages of 5-18 years with their emotional wellbeing and mental health.

Visit the CAMHS website for lots of tips and resources to support how your child is feeling. There are resources and support for parents/carers and professionals too.

The NHS provides information advice and support for parents who have children and teenagers with mental health difficulties.  This includes advice and support around anxiety and depression, bereavement, anger issues and exam stress.

Young Minds offer practical advice and tips on supporting your child - from how to encourage your child to open up about their feelings to dealing with mental health services. They have a Parents A-Z mental health guide, and Parents Helpline who can provide advice and support if you're worried about a child or young person.
