Transforming our services – some exciting news

We are delighted to announce that Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s (CWP) community Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), in partnership with Catch 22, are one of 24 services who have been successful in their application to transform services to the Children’s and Young People’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (CYP IAPT) model of care during 2013/2014.

What is CYP IAPT?

Improving Access to Psychological Therapies, (IAPT), is a programme that has been implemented in some adult mental health services for some time now.  CYP, (Children and Young People) IAPT is different from the adult model delivered and the format is already proving successful in a number of CAMHS services since its introduction in 2011. We are delighted to be working in partnership within this programme with a valued third sector partner, Catch 22.

Following  training, (in CBT and parenting programmes) our staff and Catch 22 will be looking at how we could transform our existing services with improved service user and carer involvement.  We work very hard to tailor our services to fit each individual case and CYP-IAPT will help to review the decision making process around your care and will  help us improve how we monitor your progress.
