CAMH-Crisis2 – Your help is needed!20 February 2023
CAMH-Crisis2: Crisis care for children and young people with mental health problems: National mapping, models of delivery, sustainability and experience. Please consider completing this survey and encourage your colleagues/stakeholders to do the same. This is important!Sharon White
We have been funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Health and Social Care Delivery Research (HSDR) Programme (Ref: NIHR151811) to explore how mental health crisis responses for children and young people up to the age of 25 are sustained, experienced and integrated within their local systems of services.
We are currently conducting work to describe and map NHS, local authority, youth justice, education and third sector approaches to children and young people’s crisis care across England and Wales and we are seeking your help in identifying these services via an online survey. This is an important opportunity to establish, for the first time, what services exist in this area and to inform future policy and provision and we therefore very much hope that you will consider taking part.
For the purposes of this project, we use the term ‘mental health crisis services’ to describe any children and young people’s services which are provided in response to extreme psychosocial distress, with or without self-harm, in any location.
Please can we ask for your help in identifying these services – either by completing the survey if your organisation responds to children and young people in crisis, or forwarding this email on to any crisis services you are aware of.
