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.

“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

“We welcome the publication of the implementation plan, which provides detail on how services will reach a million more people a year by 2020/21. As chair of the Advisory and Oversight Group I will be keeping a close eye on progress and helping to make sure that the services and government departments involved are on track. The implementation plan is a step in the right direction, but we cannot afford to become complacent. The job is just beginning and we must all play our part.” Paul Farmer, Chief Executive of Mind and independent chair of NHS England’s mental health taskforce
