Transforming mental health services for children and young people in Norfolk and Waveney

The transformation of children and young people's mental health services has progressed significantly since the involvement of RETHINK partners as consultants in 2018/2019, and subsequent collaborative work undertaken by system partners.

Consultation and engagement with children, young people, families and professionals was built upon to develop a new service model, aligned closely to the i-THRIVE conceptual framework. This new approach marks a shift to outcomes based commissioning and community based services.

The emphasis is on individual need, better access to advice and help, relationship-focused practice, prevention, and early intervention. Significant achievements include the establishment of a new integrated governing body (the Strategic Alliance Board), the transition from design to implementation in early 2020, and the first iteration of a different way of accessing support and different ways of working for mental health providers, in spite (and in some ways because) of COVID-19.

You can find more information about transforming mental health services for children and young people on the Norfolk and Waveney Health and Care Partnership website.
