Event description

Description

NHS West Midlands Mental Health Services #PitchtoEnrich Conference is an opportunity for young people, providers, commissioners and other decision makers to shape how young people are listened to, heard and their views acted upon.

Participants will explore the results from the region wide consultation and then what makes a good mental health service for young people and how to support decision makers to work with them.

Together, we will work through some of the issues that young people face accessing the services, coming up with viable solutions. We will create a vision for the restructuring of the mental health services!

The conference is open to schools, colleges and Youth Forums across the West Midlands.

Providers, Commissioners and other Decision Makers will be invited from across services including Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

Run by the Participation People.
