The mental health service for children and adolescents, CAMHS, provides specialist mental health support for young people in Ireland. The Health Services Executive is working to build a better youth mental health service for Ireland that can meet young people’s mental health needs more effectively. As part of this, a national group has been set up to find better ways for young people, their parents and guardians, and CAMHS to engage with one another about service improvement. Having already held a consultation with young people, the Mental Health Engagement and Recovery Office are interested in how parents/guardians would like to give feedback on their experiences of CAMHS and how best CAMHS can collect this feedback to make improvements to their service. The Children’s Rights Alliance are running consultations and an online survey on behalf of the HSE Mental Health Engagement and Recovery Office to collect the views of parents.How Parents Can Get InvolvedConsultationsCRA will be holding a series of consultations online for parents.
