Calderdale CAMHS

There are two services providing CAMH services in Calderdale:

1. Calderdale CAMHS Tier 2 (provided by Northpoint)

Tel: 01422 300 001

Address: 9 Clare Road, Halifax, West Yorkshire, HX1 2HX

Email: firstpointofcontact@calderdalecamhs.org.uk *
*confidential information should not be emailed

CAMHS Tier 2 work with children displaying emotional or mental health problems which significantly affect their daily life despite a preventative or universal services intervention AND the criteria for Tier 3 CAMHS (see below) are not met.

2. Calderdale CAMHS Tier 3 (provided by SWYFT)

Tel: 01422 262 380

Address: Laura Mitchell Health and Wellbeing Centre, Great Albion Street, Halifax, West Yorkshire, HX1 1YR

CAMHS Tier 3 work with more severe, complex and enduring difficulties affecting children & young people. Tier 3 CAMHS can also help where there is a reasonable indication that the child may have complex neurodevelopmental difficulties e.g. autistic spectrum continuum, ADHD or other difficulties that may require a multi-disciplinary assessment.

Please note that any referrals that are sent to CAMHS via the Laura Mitchell Health Centre will be passed to the First Point of Contact at Clare Road to be triaged. This can delay the process for young people.
