The launch of CAMH Bulletin is seen as a natural progression for www.camh.org.uk and results from our commitment to provide as helpful as possible a source of information to our website visitors and to foster discussion and knowledge about CAMH disorders and issues.

The website contains broad information on a range of mental health conditions encountered within a typical CAMH service including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) anxiety autism behavioural problems bullying depression eating disorders obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) psychosis and substance abuse. In addition to the provision of this information the site contains details of relevant links to other websites including support groups governmental and non-governmental organisations downloadable information sheets book recommendations and a unique literature search facility enabling the searching of a range of journals (including the British Medical Journal the Lancet and the British Journal of Psychiatry) from one convenient page.
