Children and Young People's Mental Health and Emotional Well-being
Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing – Current System Provision Survey
Individuals, who are working in services that support children and young people, are invited to take part in a survey to enable Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group and its partners (Wirral Council – Children’s Department and Wirral Public Health) to establish a better understanding of the current service provision that exists to support children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing.
In October 2015, a children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing Local Transformation Plan (LTP) was launched across Wirral, which was subsequently refreshed in October 2016. This LTP aims to meet the aspirations set out by the Government in their national strategy for children and young people’s mental health: Future in Mind.
Since its publication, significant investment and progress has been made on the journey to improve outcomes for children, young people and their families. However, we recognise that there is still much to be done to deliver on the commitments outlined in the LTP.
To support the 2017 refresh of this plan and to enable transformation to take place going forward, the Wirral Future in Mind Steering Group has commissioned a survey to gather information on the services that exist to support children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing; the patient pathways in place; and the skills and training requirements of the workforce.
The results of the survey will help to inform next steps, to enable Wirral to address the five key themes of Future in Mind:
- Promoting Resilience, Prevention and Early Intervention
- Improving Access to Effective Support – a System without Tiers
- Care for the most vulnerable
- Accountability and Transparency
- Developing the Workforce.
The survey will run for 4 weeks, from Wednesday 23rd August to Wednesday 20th September 2017.
