CS-2017-305 Rationalisation of additional funding for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)

Closed 31 Oct 2016

Opened 15 Sep 2016


Overview of proposal

To rationalise the additional support currently provided by the Council for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services recognising that young people identified as having issues with mental health would access support through conventional means.

Overall impact of proposed change

There will be no direct access to the CAMHS service for young people involved with children’s social care, through the social work team currently based in CAMHS, however access to the overall service will still be available through conventional means.  Additional service provision to support emotional wellbeing of young people is also now available through Healthy Young Minds Service which is part of the recently commissioned transformation programme.  

Impact on affected service users

There should be no impact on service users who will still be able to access the Healthy Young Minds Service.

Total Savings: 2018/19 £350,000 ongoing
