  • Future in Mind

     

    A national Children and Young People's Mental Health Taskforce was establised in September 2014 to consider ways to make it easier for children, young people, parents and carers to access help and support when needed and to improve how children and young people's mental health services are organised, commissioned and provided.  As a result Portsmouth City Council and NHS Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group are undertaking a consultation with children, young people, parents and carers to help develop a transformation plan for Portsmouth.

     

    An easy read document about Future in Mind has been produced and can be found by clicking here.
