Mental Health Webinar Series
Setting the Agenda
Integrated Mental Health & Social Care for Children, Young People and Families
18 May 2021
14:30 - 16:00 GMT
It is well documented that children and young people’s mental health is a growing need that has been exacerbated by Covid-19. Last summer, young people supported by Barnardo’s said that the current system isn’t working:
“Too many children and young people are having to meet crisis point before they access support - children and young people want to be supported with their mental health and wellbeing at the earliest possible stage, before their needs escalate” 
With the imminent implementation of Integrated Care Systems, this is an opportune time to learn from, and build on, the acceleration of integrated collaboration throughout the pandemic. It is also a timely opportunity to consider what an integrated health and social care system could mean for children and young people’s mental health services and how it could lead to better support and ultimately, better outcomes.
In this webinar, delegates will:
Hear from leaders in NHS integrated care systems
Gain knowledge and insights into children and young people’s mental health service delivery and personalised care through three integrated models of innovation and excellence with Barnardo’s
This event will highlight the importance of partnership and integrated working to effect change to better meet the needs of and improve outcomes for children and young people.
