Who we are
Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Sussex Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), provides NHS care and treatment for people living in south east England.
Our mental health services provide care and treatment for people with conditions such as psychosis, depression, anxiety, dementia and personality disorder. Our specialist learning disability services provide community and inpatient care for people with complex health needs which can’t be met by other services. We have a number of services that provide very specialist care for people with complex health conditions and social care needs.
We provide care in people’s homes, in specialist clinics, hospitals, GP surgeries and prisons. Our services are aimed at children, young people and adults of all ages and many are provided in partnership.
Our values: People first. Future focused. Embracing change. Working together. Everyone counts.
