Young people’s mental health problems are reinforced by other problems like education and employment. Charities like YoungMinds are building strong partnerships with like-minded organisations, including NHS mental health services, to signpost and provide a more holistic service for young people.
There is much work underway following Future in Mind and the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health, with a major emphasis on access and quality, and work on the Evidence Based Treatment Pathways for Crisis Care and Generic CYP Mental Health Services. In NHS England we remain focussed on delivery of our existing plans, as well as using the opportunity to enhance joined up working across education and social care to improve outcomes.
The first step is to encourage a healthy pregnancy. Nationally, suicide is one of the leading causes of maternal deaths. At least one in ten women is affected by mental disorders in the perinatal period and 5% will experience a major depressive episode. NHS England awarded almost £3m in November 2016 for a Perinatal Mental Health Community Service across the London boroughs of Brent, Harrow, Hillingdon, Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster.
There has been a significant shift in the lifestyles of young people and families over the last 10 years driven by the evolution of technology and transformation of industries such as shopping, banking and music. This shift in lifestyle means young people and their families are having different expectations on how they would like to engage and receive healthcare services. This talk will cover how new adaptable healthcare models are essential in successfully engaging with young people and their families for best outcomes, and, how these new models will also drive both an evolution and revolution in areas of prevention, treatment and management of care.
This talk will explore the progress in transforming children and young people’s mental health care in England since the publication of Future in Mind, a government strategy to improve services published in March 2015, alongside a commitment to invest £1.25bn over five years.
Kooth (from XenZone) is an online counselling and emotional well-being service for children and young people. Commissioned in Hertfordshire since March 2016, this presentation will explore how Kooth has provided children and young people in Hertfordshire with a stigma-free and easily accessible pathway to mental health support. We will explore the Kooth model and service usage from young people in Hertfordshire and the impact this is having on the community.
Drawing on his experience as the Minister for Mental Health who commissioned the CYP
IAPT CAMHS transformation programme, his work as Chair of the Tavistock and Portman
NHS FT and the University of Birmingham Mental Health Policy Commission he is leading. Paul Burstow will set out his proposals for delivering better mental health support for
children and young people.
Increased prevalence of eating disorders, increasing treatment cost and still limited evidence based interventions. This talk will focus on the application of treatment principles to the development of services for young people with anorexia nervosa. How does thinking about the bigger picture promote the use of integrated services?
Many schools already support their pupils’ mental health, but with training and support all schools can play their part in the wider system to support children and young people’s mental health. The Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition worked with Public Health England, to develop a framework to help schools understand how implementing the key principles of a whole school approach can help promote emotional health and wellbeing within schools. The Coalition was a co-sponsor of the Values Based Commission, which is being implemented in the Schools NorthEast Commission, Healthy MindED.
NICE compliant evidence-based parenting programmes, like Triple P, offer early intervention and treatment approaches that help stop the spiral into high cost crisis care. When deployed as a system Triple P provides dose-appropriate support for families across an area, demonstrating population health benefits, driving collaboration between stakeholders and easing pressure on waiting lists for CAMHS.
The Government has pledged to invest in child and adolescent mental health services, with £119 million of NHS funding allocated to clinical commissioning groups for this financial year and another £140 million promised for 2017/18, with an additional £30 million for eating disorder services. However, as the recently launched Royal College of Psychiatrists’ report shows, local NHS areas are spending less than £10 a head on the mental health of children and young people in their communities.
