  • Website No decision about me without me (participatory video)

    Developing the participation of children and young people in the services they receive from CAMHS providers is no longer an optional 'add on' for key professionals. It is a key facet in the delivery of these services and a key component of government policies for the development of the NHS. This short film explores why young people believe their participation is important. Features examples of good practice and how this leads to improved outcomes for young people. This short video could be used in meetings and to encourage discussion with commissioners.
