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 

This conference is aimed at all mental health 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 current 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.

“Whilst we are making important progress in improving access to effective mental health services for children and young people, there is still much to do and public and political interest remains high…. recognising the pressures which are faced by localities in transforming their services, we have reviewed and reprioritised spending on nationally-led programmes and I am pleased to be able to announce that we have identified an additional £25 million which can be made available for CCGs in 2016/17. This furtherfunding is in addition to the £149 million of new money already allocated to CCGs for children and young people’s mental health in 2016/17… I should be grateful for your support in making the most of this additional funding over the remainder of this year and continuing our shared aim of improving these critical services” Claire Murdoch National Mental Health Director, NHS England, 26th September 2016
