Outcomes and funding
The transformational plan was written in response to recommendations set out in the Department of Health's report: 'Future in mind: Promoting, protecting and improving our children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing'.
The publication of the plan secured funding to carry out the following outcomes in Liverpool:
- Build capacity and capability across the system so that we make measurable progress towards closing the health and wellbeing gap and securing sustainable improvements in children and young people’s mental health outcomes by 2020.
- Roll-out the Children and Young People’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programmes (CYP IAPT) so that by 2018 we are delivering a choice of evidence based interventions, adopting routine outcome monitoring and feedback to guide treatment and service design, working collaboratively with children and young people. We will also extend access to training via CYP IAPT for staff working with children under five and those with autism and learning disabilities.
- Develop evidence based community eating disorder services for children and young people with capacity in general teams released to improve self-harm and crisis services.
- Improve perinatal care.
In addition, NHS Liverpool CCG is seeking to work in partnership with local authorities, schools, NHS providers, youth justice, the police, the voluntary and community sector and most importantly children, young people, parents and carers.
