As your approach your eighteenth birthday the professionals in your CAMHS service will begin talking to you about the process of ‘transition’ from their service.
Some people move from CAMHS back to the care of their GP once they turn eighteen, while others move into Adult Mental Health Service (AMHS).
There may be other changes happening in your life at about the same time, and you can talk to CAMHS about these, and explore your next steps and the support available to you.
Please read the Moving on information booklet, on this page which will talk you through the process of transition, and enable you to take an active tole with professionals in planning your transition.
