Young people invited to have their say on mental health services
07 April 2014

Young people are being invited to have their say over how mental health services for those up to the age of 17 are being run in Cambridgeshire.

Parents and carers can also take part in the workshops being organised by the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).

The workshops are taking place on:

• Thursday 10 April at The Newtown Centre Nursery Road Huntingdon PE29 3RJ - 11.30am to1pm
• Thursday 10 April at Alan Conway Court, Doddington Hospital, Benwick Road, Doddington PE15 0UG - 2.30pm to 4pm
• Monday 14 April at Brookside Child and Family Consultation Clinic, Trumpington Road, Cambridge CB2 8AH – 11.30am to 1pm

Sophie Allan, Involvement Coordinator for Community CAMHS (pictured), said: “We want as many young people who are involved with our services, or those who have recently been discharged, as possible to come along.

“We really want to hear from them about their experiences about CAMHS, what we do well and how services can be improved.
“We also want to hear from their parents and carers. Their views are vital and will really help shape how our services will look in the future.”

CAMHS, which is run by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT), provides assessment and treatment for children and young people up to the age of 17 living in Cambridgeshire.

It helps young people who are experiencing a range of complex issues from emotional and behavioural problems to eating and neurodevelopmental disorders. CAMHS also offers support for their families.

To book a place at one of the workshops or to find out more, contact Sophie Allan via sophie.allan@cpft.nhs.uk or call 01223 746001.
