Commissioning transitional mental health services that meet the needs of young people
Learning Event : Knowledge exchange workshop
The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), London
09:30 to 16:00 Thursday, 29 November 2018
Young people experiencing mental health issues can find transition to adulthood challenging. Reasons for this include:
- Young people not being eligible for adult mental health services.
- Adult mental health services not offering the right kind of support.
- Adult mental health support being very different in its approach to child mental health services.
- Some young people being better served by other kinds of support offered by public health, education or community support services.
This Knowledge Exchange Workshop will consider how we can develop creative, innovative and co-produced services that better support young people experiencing mental health issues during their transition to adulthood.
Aimed at: People who have a role in commissioning mental health services, including commissioners with a remit around mental health, public health or transition services.
You can also allocate your workshop places to CCG based commissioners, Community Mental Health Teams and those working in psychiatric settings. Please ensure they have created an online account at Research in Practice / Research in Practice for Adults and that your Link Officer requests their place by sending an email to email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org copying in their information.
