Mental health services worked with young people who have experience of mental health issues to hold a one-day conference on the transformation of services to improve the way that mental health care is provided.

Over 100 professionals from health, social care, criminal justice, education, council and third sector organisations from across Lancashire attended the event, entitled “It’s all about trust – CAMHS Conference 2018.”

The conference led to discussions on some of the current challenges and developments in delivering mental health and wellbeing services for young people.

Michelle Taylor, Primary Mental Health Worker in CAMHS at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, said:” “The event follows on from the ‘Future in Mind’ report that NHS England and the Department of Health released in 2015 on the importance of easier access to effective mental health care for children, young people and their families at point of need. The conference was held to capture some of the exciting developments that are taking place in Lancashire.”
