Yorkshire Humber Region Update June 2016

Update for the June meeting of the ADCS Council of Reference

Children’s Mental Health Agenda

Strong links continue to flourish with NHS England with regard to the children’s mental health agenda.

The recently established Regional Children’s Mental Health Team comprises colleagues from NHS England, a NHS clinical lead (to be selected) and a regional DCS nominated LA lead.

The team is working closely with Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and other partners to support Local Transformation Plans (LTP), and identify those things which might best be facilitated regionally, such as a series of workshops in 2016 which will to help to disseminate emerging goodpractice around LTPs.

The first of these workshops was held in March of this year and feedback was very positive.

Officers in other regions who may wish to familiarise themselves with this activity can do so by contacting the regional DCS nominated LA lead and member of the regional mental health team, Rob Mayall, who can be contacted at rob.mayall1@gmail.com
