This virtual conference focuses on transforming mental health services for children and young people, ensuring early intervention, and developing integrated services with clear care pathways from first intervention to crisis and inpatient care. The conference will also look at national developments in monitoring outcomes in CYP Mental Health including the development of a National CYP Mental Health Outcomes Metric.

“One in eight five to 19 year olds are thought to have a diagnosable mental health condition.”

UK Parliament 2019 

“The NHS Long Term Plan sets out the priorities for expanding Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services (CYPMHS) over the next 10 years. It aims to widen access to services closer to home, reduce unnecessary delays, and deliver specialist mental health care which is based on a clearer understanding of young people’s needs and provided in ways that work better for them.”

NHS England 2020

“Services for children and young people are moving away from a tiered approach to a whole systems framework, which focuses on getting the right support at each stage, from early intervention to managing more severe, risky presentations.”
