Bandon will temporarily host a CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) facility while renovations to St David’s ward in Clonakilty Community Hospital are being completed.

It follows calls for the HSE to fund a CAMHS centre in Clonakilty.

CAMHS provides assessments and treatments for young people who are experiencing mental health difficulties such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders.

Minister Mary Butler visited the Clonakilty Community Hospital today and met with the west Cork CAMHS team.

The HSE say the new centre will take 4 - 6 months to complete.
