Attend this informative networking forum and discover workable strategies to enact meaningful change and produce better outcomes. Take one day out to attend this unique, research-driven event and your CAMHS team will benefit from:
· Fantastic opportunities to network with other CAMHS professionals

· Upcoming considerations for CAMHS teams: update on the national consultancy
· Benchmarking your service progression with other teams from around the country
· A choice of specialised workshops: Eating Disorders, CAMHS to AMHS or Learning Disabilities
Researched with experience professionals from community workers to psychiatrists, the day’s content has been developed to provide delegates with insightful reflections on:
· Early intervention: defining ‘early’, gathering outcomes and working alongside schools and families
· Admission avoidance: engaging patients, developing community support and extending hours
· Staffing your service: interview strategies to involve CYP, easing workplace stress and retaining staff
· Making sense of budgets: delivering cost-effective results and engaging with your CCG
· National CAMHS consultation update: standardising service and the process so far
Team attendance is recommended as the afternoon will split into three focussed, in-depth and interactive workshops. You can choose from:
· Innovative Approaches to the Treatment of Eating Disorders: a unique opportunity to discover the logistics of setting up and the realities of running a new eating disorder service
· Supporting Young People throughout the move from CAMHS to AMHS: learn how your service could ease pressure at this stressful time whilst supporting CYP and promoting independence
· Establishing a Comprehensive and Effective Pathway for Learning Disabilities: making the most of PBS, reducing restrictive interventions and working alongside schools and families
A space in which CAMHS teams can honestly and productively share their experiences
This communicative forum will bring together service managers, programme directors, consultant psychiatrists, community support workers, CYP practitioners, clinical psychologists, nurse practitioners and clinical leads. Connect with your professional counterparts and uncover innovative ways to move past your shared difficulties.
