There is rising demand for mental health services and the number of children being referred to emergency mental healthcare in England has increased by more than 50 per cent in three years. A different approach is needed to address this need now.

Integrated neighbourhood teams bring together multi-disciplinary professionals from different organisations across health and care services. They allow for more patient education, greater opportunities for access to services, and joined-up working across the system, especially with voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations. In this session, we will explore the value of this approach.
