Future in Mind – services for children and young people’s emotional well-being are changing…
Young people’s views are at the heart of the North Lincolnshire Children and Young People’s Emotional Health and Wellbeing Transformation Plan. Alongside the refreshed version of the full plan, young people who attend the Positive Steps working group led and contributed to the development of a children and young people’s version of the plan.
The children and young people’s version, which is also for parents and carers, helps to make sense of why things need to change, what’s happened already, what’s going to happen and when. As well as the content, young people also contributed to the design and formatting.
The document clarifies what we mean when we say emotional health and wellbeing and it outlines the local picture in relation to children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing. It simplifies the local priorities as to how we can make a difference, which are that:
• We all have a responsibility to support children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing
• Adults who work with children and young people will be trained and will use and adapt their skills to make a difference
• We will make it easier for the most vulnerable to get specialist help e.g. CAMHS (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service)
• Adults who work with children and young people will develop better ways of communicating and sharing info
• There will be better services in the community to help children and young people with eating disorders
• We will develop specialist home support and treatment to help children and young people stay out of hospital (where possible).
It also sets out how we’ll know whether our priorities are making a difference and it encourages young people to have their say through the Positive Steps working group.
