THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
With a Green Paper expected to detail government plans to transform school, university and family mental health services later this year, following the Care Quality Commission's thematic review into children's mental health services, this seminar will examine the next steps for improving children's mental health provision.
The seminar takes place in light of the Prime Minister’s recent announcement of measures to improve child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), in light of research finding that additional funding provided for CAMHS is in some cases failing to reach frontline services.
Delegates at this seminar will consider the implementation of measures to improve mental health provision in schools, including providing free mental health training for all secondary school teachers. The key findings of the ongoing Education and Health Select Committees’ joint inquiry into the role of education in children’s mental health will also be discussed.
Further sessions will consider the next steps for improving integration in children and young people’s mental health services, in light of the Government’s announcement of trials to strengthen the links between schools and local NHS mental health staff and its commitment to provide every child with local access to specialist mental health care by 2021.
