SET CAMHS for children and young people

SET CAMHS: Southend, Essex and Thurrock Children's and Adolescent's Mental Health Services

Following a successful tender period in the summer of 2021, our Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Service (EWMHS) will continue to be provided by North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT) for the next seven years.

The Service has been re-named Southend, Essex and Thurrock Children’s and Adolescent Mental Health Services (SET CAMHS) and commenced on April 1.

SET CAMHS provides advice and support, assessment and intervention to children, young people and families who are in need of support with their emotional wellbeing or mental health difficulties. The service also provides information about alternative community resources available to support children and young people’s emotional wellbeing.

The service covers Southend, Essex and Thurrock and is open to young people between the ages of 0-18, or up to 25 for those with special educational needs with co-morbid mental health difficulties.

Any child or young person experiencing mental health difficulties as well as any parent, guardian or professional can access the service for help and guidance.

There are lots of ways to access the service:

• A child or young person can contact us directly
• Any parent/guardian or professional such as a teacher, school nurse or GP can contact us on the behalf of the young person
• Any child or young person experiencing mental health difficulties as well as any parent, guardian or professional can access the service for help and guidance


Some of these services are delivered in partnership with HCRG Care Group (previously known as Virgin Healthcare).
The service will continue to provide seven community hub teams, a county wide Intensive support/Crisis service, an out of hours service, Eating Disorder service and Learning Disability service.

You can get in touch directly with the SET CAMHS during working hours (9am-5pm, Monday to Friday) on 0800 953 0222, or for out of hours crisis support, contact Mental Health Direct: 0800 995 1000. You can also contact the service via
