Wednesday, 21 May, 2014

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) integrated workforce planning tool was first developed as part of the CAMHS National Workforce Programme (2011) and has since been further developed by Cme in the Community, in partnership with the Child and Maternal Health Intelligence Network (ChiMat), where it is hosted. Cme in the Community is a community interest company (CIC) which offers a comprehensive range of services direct to children, young people, their families and professionals focusing on improving the emotional well-being and mental health of children and young people.This web-based interactive tool, and its associated guidance, supports effective workforce planning and development, facilitating organisations to produce a comprehensive, integrated plan, which can be updated as situations change and new data becomes available. It is designed to strengthen workforce planning capacity and capability across organisations and build the confidence of those involved in planning, to meet the mental health and psychological well-being needs of children and young people.
