A referral to CAMHS can be made by the school SENCO or via your GP. Each local authority has their own CAMHS services (some are now grouped together) but the one you access is dependent on where you are registered with your GP.
Please see the links below for your local authority. Please note that every mental health trust in London has put in place a 24/7 crises line for people of all ages which are free to call and can provide advice to those in crises.
Please see this link for all the telephone numbers for London: 24/7 crises lines
