CAMHS Transformation Planning Event
24th September 2015
The Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Board is proposing an all-day CAMHS Transformation event at The Royal Cornwall Pavilion Centre, Wadebridge, on September 24th 2015.
The Department of Health and Department of Education have recently announced additional funding for children and adolescent mental health services; including specific funding for eating disorders.  Some additional funds are expected for perinatal mental health.  To access the funding there needs to be a robust and innovative CAMHS Transformation plan in place which is developed with key stakeholders.

The event is intended to share and develop further the initial plan.  This initial plan has been developed with focus groups and building on the Future in Mind national CAMHs Strategy and includes perinatal mental health and young people’s mental health up to 25 years of age.
An  agenda for the day will be issued in early September once speakers and workshops are confirmed. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
