IMPROVING MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS IN HAMMERSMITH & FULHAM

Hammersmith & Fulham’s Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) provide multi-disciplinary assessment, and therapeutic and psychopharmacological interventions for children and young people up to the age of 18 years. In November 2019 funding for the provision was approved for 2018/19 (retrospectively) and 19/20, with delegated authority to the Director of Children’s Services for 1920/21. Accordingly this report seeks approval for continuation of CAMHS services for contract year 1920/21.
