Specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)

starting with a baseline variations audit of provision of sCAMHS this work stream will develop a delivery and quality framework  based on achieving consistent outcomes across Wales. It will be based on the Choice and Partnership Approach, a clinical system widely adopted by CAMHS services. This framework will be implemented in 2016.

Engagement with Children and Young People

Children and young people are being given the opportunity to develop and shape the future delivery of emotional and mental health services through broad roots engagement that captures the well being of all children and not just those who use Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). This includes working closely with Children in Wales, the Children’s Commissioner’s office, and the third sector 'High Needs Collaborative'.
