Commissioning transitional mental health services that meet the needs of young people
Learning Event : Knowledge exchange workshop
The Studio Birmingham, Birmingham
09:30 to 16:30 Thursday, 28 March 2019
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.
