Most CAMHS services work with the whole family to support a young person's mental health. This might include coming along to assessment and treatment appointments, depending on the child's age and what level of involvement they want. Someone, usually your parents, teacher, GP, or yourself if old enough, can refer you for an assessment with CAMHS to see what help you could get.
