How to contact YoungMinds
Looking for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)?
YoungMinds is an independent national charity and is not part of the NHS at all. CAMHS is a set of local services run by the NHS in your area and you’ll usually be referred by your GP or, you can find your nearest CAMHS service on the NHS website.
What training do you provide?
Currently we do not provide training or presentations to young people, but it is something we’re hoping to offer in the future. For opportunities for young people under 25 check out our Join the Movement pages.
I want to fundraise for you
Can you support me with my essay / project / paper / statistics / research?
Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to give advice or research support as we are not a research organisation. All of our current statistical and information that we do hold can be found on our mental health statistics page or in our resources library.
If you are looking for resources such as leaflets, they can be found on our publications page.
Could someone from YoungMinds attend / speak at my event?
Can you promote my services / book / petition?
We are unable to promote or endorse projects when we have not been involved in the development process from the beginning.
Unfortunately we no longer review books for our magazine as we made the decision to stop printing it in 2014 and we just share our own news in the form of our monthly eNewsletter.
I want to work for or volunteer with YoungMinds...
If you would like information on our current paid and voluntary vacancies, please visit our jobs page.
If you have any queries about any of the roles, please contact the recruitment team.
If you are a young person under the age of 25 and would like more information on playing an active role in the work we do, see how you can get involved.
I am interested in an internship/work experience/placement session with you
Unfortunately we do not offer clinical services to young people, so we are unable to support psychology/social work etc. placements at YoungMinds.
We are also not currently able to offer internships or accommodate work experience placements due to the lack of resources in the office.
