RISE (Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services CAMHS)


The integrated specialist child and adolescent mental health service supports children & young people with mental health difficulties (including mental illness).

In 2017, CAMHS partnered up with Coventry and Warwickshire Mind to transform emotional well-being and mental health services for children and young people in Coventry and Warwickshire.

RISE seeks to work closely with schools, voluntary community services, Social Care and Primary Care to increase support for children and young people where needed.

In Warwickshire there are 5 community hubs, where families can access information, guidance and speak to a mental health colleague.

RISE Key aims:
  • Support children and young people aged 0-25 in a way that matters to them
  • Have increased emphasis on prevention and early intervention

Adult Mental Health

It is really important that families look after their own mental health. Sometimes when a child or young person experiences mental illness it can have an impact on the people caring for them. Children and young people will often look up to their parents/carers and if they see them managing their own mental health it may encourage them to do the same.
