Dear Colleagues, I would like to draw your attention to this consultation and ask you to pass it on to appropriate people.

Nationally it is known that more than 1 in 10 young people will experience mental health problems during their childhood or adolescence and poor service transitions make it more likely that young people will disengage from mental health services despite having continuing needs.

In Oxfordshire, this new proposed model is designed to enable seamless transitioning for young people from Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services to Adult Services and ensure young people are able to access the most appropriate services regardless of age, or for them to be safely discharged from Mental Health Services if appropriate.

Please pass on this link to the consultation, which is on the Public Involvement Network webpage;
