Currently in Birmingham, children and young adults with mental health issues don’t always get the help they need because services can be fragmented, difficult to access and confusing for people to use.
Birmingham South Central Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Birmingham CrossCity CCG, Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG and Birmingham City Council are working together to improve community mental health services for children and young adults aged 0 to 25 in the Birmingham area.
A consultation is being held between January and February 2014 to get people’s views on the design of the new service, including:
How you would like the services to be joined up?
What services should be included?
What the services should look and feel like?
All views are welcome, whether you are a patient, carer, provider of services, clinician or a member of the public, and especially if you are a child or young person.
You can take part in the consultation by filling in a survey, joining the conversation on Twitter #0to25yrsMHS or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. There will also be open events, details of which can be found on the consultation website.
