Launch of Commission to improve young people’s mental health

In January 2016, YoungMinds along with the Royal College of Psychiatrists and the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition launched a Commission to improve mental healthcare provision for children and young people.

The Commission, chaired by Baroness Claire Tyler, focuses on what really matters to the children and young people who rely on the support of Children and Adolescents Mental Health services (CAMHS). It enforces the importance of involving young people, their parents and their carers alongside CAMHS professionals, partner agencies and commissioner when developing how these services are delivered.
