Transitions of Mental Health Services – we’d like to hear from you!

Scrutiny Members have responded to concerns that have been raised about the inconsistencies in the transition of young people from CAMHS (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services) to adult mental health services by setting up a joint Task and Finish Group that is focusing on the following areas:

  • Information sharing to parents/carers and individuals about future service provision beyond 16 years of age
  • Communication between various key agencies
  • Procedures and arrangements affecting parents/carers.
  • Carers assessments – how these are being offered.
  • The need for a clear pathway for the transition between services.

Have you or someone you care for had any need to use CAMHS services and experienced the transition either between different CAMHS services or between CAMHS and adult mental health services?   If so, we would like to hear from you – both good and bad experiences, and what you think would have made your life easier.
