Mapping of Mental Health Services for Children and Young People

The University of Manchester are conducting a blueprint study which aims to develop a model for high quality service design for children and young people experiencing common mental health problems.

Part of the study involves a mapping of all services across England and Wales that are currently delivered. The purpose of this mapping exercise is to establish current provision and to develop a sampling frame to identify possible case study sites for the fieldwork stage of the Blueprint study (scheduled to start in 2020).

The University is keen to ensure the map incorporates VCSE sector services, so if you deliver any services, projects or programmes that meet the description below, do participate in the short online survey which should take no longer than 5–10 minutes to complete. 

  • Targeted at children and young people (CYP) aged up to 18 years

  • Focused on CYP experiencing ‘common mental health problems’ (agreed by our Advisory Group to be: anxiety, depression, OCD, self-harm, PTSD, gender identity issues, emerging personality disorders, ADHD, ADD, conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, substance misuse)

  • Providing out of hospital (outpatient) or community-based services (i.e., not inpatient services)

  • Delivered by any sector, e.g., NHS, third sector, local authority, education or social care organisation

  • Aimed at CYP themselves, or at their parents, carers, other family members or peers

  • Located in England and Wales or providing an online (virtual) service to CYP living in these areas
