If you already have a diagnosis of attachment difficulties or you are waiting for an assessment to be diagnosed, there are lots of services to support you with your mental health and wellbeing.
People with attachment difficulties can experience all the things that others without the condition may struggle with, like anxiety or low mood.
CAMHS supports people with attachment difficulties who also have other mental health problems. Visit here for further information about the support you might need.
If you are concerned that you, your child or young person you care for is showing attachment difficulties, Childline offers support to anyone under 19 years through telephone chat, one-to-one counsellor chat and email support. Contact 0800 11 11.
