The transformation of services and support for children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing is led by local areas. This means that children, young people, their families and professionals from across the NHS, public health, local authorities, children’s social care, education, youth justice and voluntary and community organisations are working together to design and provide the best possible services.
Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) work with all these stakeholders, to develop and refresh Local Transformation Plans for children and young people’s mental health.
These plans set out how local services will invest resources to improve children and young people’s mental health across the “whole system."
The impact of the pandemic has seen the demand for services increase. have not been normal times Children and young people missed so much time together in education settings. Some of our most vulnerable communities were disproportionality affected by the pandemic. The pandemic has also impacted on our workforce and it continues to do. They have demonstrated a commitment and passion for the work they do and adapted how they work to ensure they continue to support our children, young people and their families.
Due to the pandemic we have not been able to undertake the breadth of co-production that we would typically do in the annual refresh of our transformation plans but we will continue to refine and update them as our consultation process with children, young people and families continues.
Our 21/22 plan is different this year due to changes made in response to the pandemic but we hope that you still see the great work that was and continues to delivered under the most testing of circumstances. Our financial investment in 21/22 will continue to be driven by addressing the gaps in care and addressing inequalities experienced by our communities.
