Children and Young People's Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Transformation Plan 2018 Refresh

This document sets out the five-year Children and Young Peoples Mental Health and Wellbeing Plan for Newcastle and Gateshead.

NHS Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group, Newcastle City Council and Gateshead Council have been working together with our communities and stakeholders to understand and plan what needs to happen locally to transform the emotional wellbeing and mental health provision for children and young people and their families across Newcastle and Gateshead.

The plan provides a framework to improve the emotional wellbeing and mental health of all children and young people across Newcastle and Gateshead. The aim of the plan is to make it easier for children, young people, parents and carers to access help and support when needed and to improve mental health services for children and young people. It sets out a shared vision, high level objectives, and an action plan which takes into consideration specific areas of focus for local authority areas.

Our Transformation Plan is a living document and sets out our commitment to ensure that children and young people and their families, and professionals working in the field, were at the heart of the transformation, by ensuring the views and experiences of those who have, are or may use services and those who deliver them were listened to and respected. This refreshed plan describes how we have achieved this over the last two years and identifies actions which are ongoing in their implementation.
