Dumfries & Galloway CAMHS

Child Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) & ISSU 18 (Young People’s Substance Service) are trying to limit the spread of COVID-19 by not seeing people in clinics.  We are open and are continuing to do our best to ensure that all children and young people get the care they need, by offering Virtual Appointments via: NHS Near Me and or Telephone Appointments.

If after speaking to you by NHS Near Me or on the telephone, we agree that you need to be seen face to face, we would then arrange this.

If a Parent/Carer or Professionals have an Enquiry about a child/young person, please call CAMHS –Monday to Friday -10am-4pm on 01387 244662 to speak to a Clinician.

A Parent/Carer or a Young Person can make a Self-Referral to CAMHS or ISSU 18, either by calling 01387 244662 or by sending an email to: dg.camhs-mail@nhs.scot to get a Self-Referral Form.

Within the NHS Dumfries & Galloway website, there is a section dedicated to Mental Health & Winter Wellbeing – you can access Self Care Information booklets aimed at young people and parent/carers, see the link below:
