The Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Taskforce has been set up to look at how to improve children’s mental health services and will be considering some of the biggest challenges facing mental health provision for children and young people.
Engaging with front line professionals is a key part of finding solutions. These events will give professionals from across different sectors involved in the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people a chance to feed in their views to the work of the Taskforce’s core members. We will be focussing on specific issues raised by the Taskforce’s task and finish groups and asking for your experiences and ideas, whether it be in health, education, or wider youth work.
The Task and Finish Groups are built around the four key themes identified by our members, which are:
- Data and Standards
- Access and Prevention
- A co-ordinated system
- Vulnerable Groups and Inequalities
We want to hear views on these issues from a diverse range of professionals who work with children and young people directly or indirectly and have experience to share with us.
The Taskforce is set to report back on its findings in Spring 2015, and your views at these events will complement and feed into the themed Task and Finish Groups which are powering the core work of the Taskforce.
