The NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) wants to hear the views of the public to understand and shape future mental health early support services children and young people aged up to 25 years.
They would like to hear from young people, parents, carers and professionals to help understand their experiences and report on what support has been like at the early intervention stage. These insights will be collated into a report to help shape the mental health and early intervention and prevention services for children and young people in the future.
Early intervention is defined as identifying and providing early support to children and young people who are at risk of poor outcomes such as mental health. Early intervention supports the prevention of worsening health and can have major societal benefits.
In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, services are commissioned to provide early support and intervention for mental health and emotional wellbeing to children and young people, aged up to 25 years, as well as training for professionals.
