Children And Young People’s Mental Health Services (CYPMH)
The NHS Long Term Plan sets out the priorities for expanding Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services (CYPMHS) over the next 10 years. It aims to widen access to services closer to home, reduce unnecessary delays, and deliver specialist mental health care which is based on a clearer understanding of young people’s needs and provided in ways that work better for them.
The Children and Young People’s Mental Health Programme within Yorkshire and the Humber Clinical Network supports delivery of these ambitions by connecting commissioners, providers, professionals, patients and the public across pathways of care with the aim of improving mental health outcomes. This is achieved by sharing best practice, benchmarking quality and outcomes and driving improvement where required, through targeted support.
