In Spring 2019, Healthwatch Trafford worked with three other local Healthwatch in Greater Manchester to find out about the local CAMHS service.
CAMHS means NHS-provided services in the United Kingdom for children and adolescents who are having difficulties with their emotional or behavioural wellbeing. CAMHS is called Healthy Young Minds in our area.
Parents of children and young people with mental health issues were surveyed and some attended discussion groups. Healthwatch also spoke to professionals to see what they think.
We are Youthwatch Trafford, young volunteers age 13-18 who help Healthwatch Trafford.
