The NPFS know that children and young people’s mental health and well-being is so important, and we are proud to have been actively involved alongside a range of organisations in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS): National service specification.
In order for children and young people to succeed in their education, and thrive in adulthood, it is important that they have the correct support in place to meet their needs. Emotional well-being and mental health are no exception to this.
The national service specification details the importance of support being easily and quickly accessible, and that support should also be available at a universal level, delivered in schools and communities.
The involvement of children, parents, and families in the processes and decision making is also key, and the specification highlights this.
