Mental Health

Mental health services in Somerset are provided by Somerset NHS Foundation Trust.  Support is given to all age ranges and people with a range of mental health problems whether they are mild, moderate or severe.

Children are supported through schools and through the child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS). CAMHS supports young people with specialist mental health needs including those affected by eating disorders across Somerset. Across the south west, specialist CAMHS is provided for young people who are deaf or hard of hearing, and inpatient care for young people requiring admission to a mental health ward (Wessex House).

For adults, there is a range of community-based mental health services and in-patient care.


The Somerset NHS Foundation Trust website has information about CAMHS and adult mental health services in Somerset:
