I was transferred from camhs CAMHS when I turned 18 - it was a pretty straightforward process (from what I remember), it just involved a few meetings with the adult team and my CAMHS worker together and took maybe a month in total?

It will be longer if you’re not directly transferred - ie if CAMHS discharge you and your gp has to refer to again (anywhere from a month to 6 months seems to be typical from what I’ve heard) but when I’ve been re referred to services the longest I’ve had to wait for general MH support was 2/3 months and eating disorder support was 6 months.
