The Right Mix

Here at Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) CAMHS we are excitedly counting down to this year’s World Mental Health Day, a global occurrence to raise awareness of the importance of mental health and well-being.

World Mental Health Day 10th October 2012

This event is now closed, but WOW! what a fantastic day we had.  

Please check back to find out about how the day went.


As part of the CWP’s efforts to make the most of this vitally important day, the service is opening its doors and inviting professionals from across its broad geographical reach, so that you can better understand the provision we offer and the ways in which we can help and support you.

Service development and redesign is a core priority for CWP, as we respond to new commissioning intentions and look to continue growing the quality and efficiency of our pathway outcomes.  In order to meet our elected goals we strongly believe that partnership working is the best way forward.

This showcasing event will provide a useful insight into our commitment to strengthening collaborative working, both with local and international agencies; as well those at the heart of CWP CAMHS, the service users.  If you would like to know more about what we can offer or are interested in learning more about the approaches and benefits of creatively developing a user-led service, this tightly packed programme of presentations is for you.
