Article originally from NHS Cheshire and Merseyside Stakeholder Brief – November 2023:

Our Children and Young People’s Mental Health Plan sets out numerous outcomes that we want to achieve to improve the mental health and wellbeing of our children and young people. These include:

  • Expanding the workforce to increase and enhance mental health service provision and significantly reduce waiting times,
  • Working in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders to think innovatively and collaboratively about service delivery,
  • Reducing health inequalities of our younger population.

We’ve produced the above animation in partnership with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Cheshire and Wirral Partnership and Mersey Care to explain what this means for children and young people in our region.
