The Women’s and Children’s Health Network acknowledges Aboriginal people as the First Peoples and Traditional Custodians of Country throughout South Australia. We acknowledge and respect their ongoing and deep spiritual connection and relationship to land, air, sea, waters, community and country. We pay our respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.

This page provides a range of information resources that will help you better understand the programs and support provided by the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service.

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) provides therapeutic services to infants, children, adolescents up to the age of 18 years, and pregnant women and families who are experiencing psychological, emotional, behavioural or social distress in their lives.

By working together with clients, their families, and when necessary, other agencies such as family doctors and schools, we offer safe and appropriate care for children, young people and their families so that they may live more fulfilling lives.
