My story



My name is Thomas, I’m 13 and I was diagnosed with social anxiety.  Before I came to CAMHS I was missing school, sat at home all day feeling scared and lonely, like I was the only one who felt like this.  It made me angry and helpless.


I knew of CAMHS before because of my sister.  She came before I did.  I thought it couldn’t help me and that it wouldn’t help me.  If you are thinking that too you are 110% wrong.


I first arrived to CAMHS like a nervous wreck, pacing and anxious.  After I had met my case manager, Graham, I felt a little better.  We talked about my problems and he educated me on my problem.  I eventually came and that helped me so much.  After coming to CAMHS I can get on with my life and I am getting into school.
