SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) is working with the Scottish Government to gather evidence from children, young people and their families across the country to inform the approach to mental health services.
In the last year 7,255 young people who were referred to CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) did not receive support from that service. At a national level they want to learn more about this situation. This work is being done as part of the Government’s Mental Health Strategy. The research will help to make recommendations for the future.
Are you a young person whose referral to CAMHS was rejected in the last two years? Or a parent, carer or family member of someone who has?
If so, SAMH want your support and participation to help out in the research.
