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 national conference is aimed at all CAMHS professionals in front line services who have a role in supporting young people’s 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 funded by a pledge of £1.25billion to support improvements in children and young people’s mental health and well being.
