Since 2014 MedEquip4Kids has provided extra resources for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) to help care for children and young people in the UK with a diagnosable mental health condition. CAMHS treats conditions including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, self harm, attachment disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and more.

According to a report by Young Minds, over 80% of young people with mental health conditions have experienced worsening of their symptoms since the COVID-19 pandemic began. One in six children aged five to 16 were identified as having a probable mental health problem in July 2020, which represents a huge increase from one in nine in 2017. The need for support is greater than ever, especially in the communities that have been most affected socially and economically by the pandemic.

We accept applications from CAMHS teams across the UK and applicants can apply for resources up to the value of £1,000. A list of suggested items is included in the application form, but applicants are welcome to add any other resources they think would be of use.

Items include reference books for parents, picture books for children, stress toys and games for children to take into school, arts and craft materials, mood cards to help with communication and understanding emotion, and diagnostic kits to help staff reach a diagnosis and provide the correct support.

Please download our application form, guidelines and suggested equipment list below. The forms are available as PDFs or Word documents.

“The new beds for parents have had such a positive impact on the wellbeing of our children knowing their parent or carer is close by. But also for the parent being able to sleep comfortably next to their child has made such a difference to how they have responded to staff during difficult times on the ward. The difference a good night’s sleep makes is priceless.”
