CAMHS Consumer and Carer Partnership

CAMHS is committed to enabling consumers and carers to be involved in decisions relating to their treatment and to provide input into service planning and improvement.

There are a number of opportunities for carers and consumers including the two advisory groups – YouTHink and ELECT.

YouTHink is a committee of ex-consumers of the CAMHS service where they participate in the decision-making process.

ELECT is made up of parents and carers. The committee was formed in early 2013.

CAMHS Consumer and Carer Participation Plan is currently under development

The plan is being developed in consultation with consumers and carers, staff and management and represents our commitment to consumer and carer participation.

Consumer and Carer Satisfaction Survey

CAMHS also conducts Consumer and Carer Satisfaction Surveys annually - the last one conducted was in late 2014.
