Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) now want to hear the views of children and young people so that we can understand and shape future mental health early support services for children and young people aged up to 25 years.
Throughout this period of engagement, we would like to hear specifically from young people as well as parents, carers and professionals to help us understand their experiences and share what support has been like at the early intervention stage. These insights will be put together to form 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 providing early support to children and young people. In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, services are funded 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.
We are now looking to understand the views of the community, including those who have directly used services, so that we can improve this pathway for future users.
