Before you make a referral it is important to read our general criteria (below) as well as any specific criteria for the clinical service you are referring into. If you decide to make a referral please include as much information as you can with regards the presenting issue.
Referrals into our Emotional Wellbeing Service are reviewed at the multi-agency Single Point of Entry meeting (SPoE). Following this meeting you will be advised the most appropriate service to offer support. This may not be CHUMS, or CAMHS, in which case you will be given contact details of the relevant service.
The following referral criteria is used across all our clinical services:
- Please check the individual service information on details of age range supported.
- Where two people have parental responsibility but live in different homes, we recommend that both parties are aware of any referral being made. However, CHUMS will accept appropriate referrals from either parent.
