From 1st June 2017 you can make a referral, including a self-referral, to the single point of access for mental health needs.
For more information go to the Brighton and Hove Wellbeing website: https://www.brightonandhovewellbeing.org/children-and-young-people/
All non-urgent routine and priority 5 day referrals will be handled by a central triage hub staffed with clinicians from the partners within the new Community Wellbeing Service (including Here, YMCA Brighton and Hove, Specialist CAMHS, and our Lead GP's).
The triage/assessment team will be available Monday to Friday from 9am-1pm and are contactable on 0300 002 0060 or by email at: BICS.email@example.com.
Parents, carers, children and young people, as well as professionals working with them, can refer directly to the team or contact the team to request a referral form. Alternatively you can call and speak to somebody from the team if you have any queries or require further information before making a referral.
The only exception for this is for the Urgent Specialist CAMHS referrals which is required if the young person is at immediate risk of taking their own life or is showing severe psychotic symptoms - please see information for how to access the Urgent Help Service.
