YoungMinds along with the Royal College of Psychiatrists and the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition today launch a Commission to improve mental healthcare provision for children and young people.
The Commission, chaired by Baroness Claire Tyler, focuses on what really matters to the children and young people who rely on the support of Children and Adolescents Mental Health services (CAMHS). It enforces the importance of involving young people, their parents and their carers alongside CAMHS professionals, partner agencies and commissioner when developing how these services are delivered.
Final recommendations from the Commission include:
- Recommendations for service providers, commissioners and managers on improvements to the current service, based on updated core values
- Recommendations on training requirements for service providers, commissioners and managers
- Recommendations for the education and training of CAMHS staff
- Recommendations for key UK health organisations including Department of Health, NHS England and the devolved assemblies’ Health Services and Departments of Health
