NEL All About Me, For the Benefit of Everyone conference
In June 2021 a conference was hosted – titled All About Me, For the Benefit of Everyone - to listen to young people, parents, carers, teachers, GPs, Police and acute healthcare colleagues. The event was created to acknowledge that CAMHS clinicians do not have all the answers, and had over 200 attendees.
Every bit of insight was analysed to develop the key areas of focus and ‘I Statements’ for each one - these priorities are now a mandate for NEL ICS CYP Mental Health Delivery Group. Since the event, these recommendations have been presented at numerous forums locally and across London, helping to guide decision making.
