At Hamilton Grammar we seek to work together as a school community to provide support wherever we can. The Pupil Support team has good links with the NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), who have provided us with the following information. If any pupil, parent or carer has a concern about mental health over the school holidays, or at any other time, we would urge them to make use of the services below;
The website for Breathing Space, which has some helpful information.
The website for CAMHS services in Lanarkshire
