I believe the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) is a joke! I have a young child who is having suicidal thoughts and has also been self-harming. They have multiple mental health disorders. One of them is not a recognised disorder here in Australia so we get, in my opinion, absolutely no help for my child financially or otherwise and likewise with their mental health issues. I'm just gobsmacked that nobody seems to want to help a young suicidal child, disgusted actually. Both times we have been to CAMHS they have told us to seek a private psychologist, this is expensive for a large family on one income. They medicated my child and all they want to do is get the GP to up the dose without actually doing anything. What happens when they can't up the dose anymore, will my child become another youth suicide statistic? How bad does it have to get before someone helps my child? I'm trying to do my best as a parent but I need help!
