Young Healthy Minds Partnership -Strategy For Northamptonshire's Children and Young People's Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health 2014 -2017.

Our emotional wellbeing and mental health strategy puts children, young people and their families at the centre of everything the services deliver, with a greater emphasis on prevention and early intervention. We have followed a natural progression building on 13 years of comprehensive Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) strategies in Northamptonshire. We continue to assert the imperative that mental health is everybody’s business as a central tenet in our approach, continuing to:

  • Strengthen the key principle in the promotion of collaborative working across agencies and services to ensure that appropriate provision is in place to support the healthy emotional development and emotional resilience of our children and young people.
  • Further align services across the partnership to ease access where and when it is needed.
  • To collaborate and to build partnerships and networks around our children and young people and to think systemically about the associated family needs in all our endeavours.

Our strategy highlights the vision, blueprint and priorities for the further development of improving positive emotional wellbeing and mental health for the next 3 years built upon a review of the 2005/08 strategy, 2010-13 strategy, a comprehensive needs assessment and service review in the summer of 2013.
