Much clearer guidance is required with regard to the availability of written information for young people, especially with regard to the issue of consent to treatment. Good practice and learning on how to involve young users of CAMHS and their families in inpatient services needs to be disseminated to in-patient CAMHS. (See YoungMinds’ Where Next)

The Very Cool CAMHSweb

This online platform includes a number of tools to help young people and their therapist explore their strengths, feelings and relationships, and work on personal goals.

Dr Jessica Austin, Lead Clinical Psychologist with the West Norfolk Family and Young Person’s Service, said: “This exciting project will make a huge difference to the recovery of many young people across West Norfolk, and we are delighted to be taking part in the pilot.

“CAMHSweb is a fantastic tool which helps young people feel more in control of their mental health care.

“It gives them the chance to personalise their treatment and express their thoughts in a variety of different ways. For example, they can doodle their goals and create avatars of the people in their lives, then, using one of the tools they can place them on a target showing how close and how supportive they are to the individual’s recovery.

“It is a very graphical and creative way of helping young people.”
