NIMHE is committed to become an organisation that works with mental health service provision for all age groups. Led by Miranda Wolpert (CAMHS fellow in NIMHE) this group seeks to bring together all those in NIMHE with a particular interest in service provision for children and young people. The group will include Regional CAMHS fellows, those working in Regional Development Centres with particular responsibility for CAMHS and those working on National programmes with a particular interest or experience in this area.

One of the roles of this group is to collate examples of the activity of different parts of NIMHE in relation to children and young people.

One example of this is the Tier 4 CAMHS Strategy recently published by West Midlands Regional Development Centre:

Understanding what we mean by CAMHS
The acronym CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) is common, but do we all mean the same thing when we use it? And who do we identify as part of it? With many millions of pounds earmarked for CAMHS services, and the repeated aspiration for genuinely joined up working, it's important to agree who and what “CAMHS” is. Miranda Wolpert and Peter Wilson tackle this question in an article published in the July issue of YoungMinds Magazine.
