CAMHS Covid-19 Support Plan:

MFT CAMHS have developed a children and young people’s (CYP) mental health support plan that outlines steps to support CYP through COVID-19, in which mental health needs are anticipated to increase significantly. We are therefore asking you to work collaboratively with us, your local communities and partners to support  children and young people’s (CYP) emotional wellbeing and mental health. Within this approach where possible we encourage everyone to support young people needs and protect the NHS CAMHS to focus on complex needs within our limited resources.

We recognise as our partners you find yourselves operating in an increasingly challenging environment. The partnerships we have created together for CYP, with local authorities, the third sector and other parts of the health system are central to successful delivery of this plan and need to be maintained and built on. We must make sure that over the next few months we work together to  manage the expected surge in mental health needs.
