The Prime Minister has announced a; ‘comprehensive package of measures to transform mental health support in our schools, workplaces and communities.’

“What I am announcing are the first steps in our plan to transform the way we deal with mental illness in this country at every stage of a person’s life: not in our hospitals, but in our classrooms, at work and in our communities. This starts with ensuring that children and young people get the help and support they need and deserve – because we know that mental illness too often starts in childhood and that when left untreated, can blight lives, and become entrenched.” Theresa May Prime Minister 9/1/17

This conference is aimed at all CAMHS professionals in front line services who have a role in supporting young peoples mental health & well being. The day will focus on The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health set out by the government in 2016 with the aim of creating a transformed service by 2020.

Through national updates and case studies from pilot sites this conference will detail the progress already being made to achieve The Five Year Forward View and give practical advice and guidance for professionals on how to achieve improvement within their service. The government has pledged £1.25billion by 2020 to support improvements in children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing.

The ambition over the next five years for children and young people’s mental health is to support CCGs to work with partners to build effective, evidence-based outcome-focused Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), working in collaboration with children, young people and families. Delivering this national ambition requires local, system wide leadership and ownership, as well as the participation of children, young people and their families.

“The costs of mental ill health – whether to the individual, their family or carer, the NHS or wider society – are stark. So today we’re kick starting national action to overhaul and expand this long neglected part of the NHS. This roadmap for implementing the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health will improve access and outcomes, reduce inequality and deliver efficiencies across the local health and care economy. As well as setting out our expectations of the NHS, we have outlined how national partners will work together to provide the right enabling structures and frameworks, to support and help drive improvements in mental health over the coming years. Other organisations who have a role to play such as social care, employers, schools are also paramount to the success of this work. The need for action cannot be ignored. It is now up to all of us to make this a reality” Claire Murdoch, NHS England’s new National Director for Mental Health

The Care Quality Commission recently found that “Children’s transition to adult services .There are more than 40,000 children and young people with complex physical health needs. We looked at their experiences of moving to adult services: Young people living with physical disabilities or illness were not always receiving the necessary care and support they need when they moved on to adult care services, with some children’s services stopping the care they provide before the equivalent adult services had started.” CQC, State of Care 2015/16, October 2016
