A guide to available datasets and reports for children and young people on mental health and wellbeing. The guide signposts the information and resources we believe will be helpful to commissioners, hospital trusts and others.
The ability to measure the work that we do and what we achieve for and with our patients is an important principle of future in mind, and is operationalised in the Five Year Forward View Implementation Plan for Mental Health.
Since Future in Mind’s launch in March 2015 and subsequent resourcing from local CAMHS transformation plans, a great deal has been planned
and actioned (though planning continues and plans are refreshed annually). This briefing aims to bring you up to speed with the progress made and opportunities available in the use of metrics to enable the best understanding of the access to and quality of mental health services provided to children and young people. We will be signposting the information and resources we believe will be helpful.
