Putting Participation into Practice
A guide for practitioners working in services to promote the mental health and well-being of children and young people.
This publication is intended to provide practical information that staff in specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and their colleagues in all services that work to promote the mental health and well-being of children and young people – in other words, ‘comprehensive CAMHS – can develop to suit their own requirements.
This guide draws on the experience of YoungMinds’ researchers and consultants working with children and young people in many different services from across the UK. It provides and overview of participation practice from a range of sources including social care, child mental health, education, youth services, and services for children with disabilities. Case studies are used throughout to illustrate examples of ways of involving children and young people in service development and in individual decision making.
This guide was published in 2005.
