How innovation is transforming mental health and neurodiversity services for children and young people

15 Jun 2023
Innovation zone

The NHS Long Term Plan sets out the priorities for expanding children and young people’s mental health services (CYPMHS) over the next ten years. It aims to widen access to services closer to home, reduce unnecessary delays, and deliver specialist mental healthcare that is based on a clearer understanding of young people’s needs and provided in ways that work better for them.

Hear about how the AHSNs have improved access to services for children and young people in ADHD diagnoses, and in early intervention treatment for eating disorders.

This session is part of the Innovation Zone, which is supported by The AHSN Network.
