At this year’s NHS ConfedExpo, we hosted several interactive sessions and shared our learning on some pressing challenges in health and care today. One of the sessions included ‘Working collaboratively to improve local CYP mental health services’, collaborating to understand your challenges, develop tailor-made solutions and deliver efficiencies that improve mental health services.
Our presenters spoke about children and young people’s mental health crisis pathway in two acute settings, Wexham Park Hospital and Frimley Park Hospital. Plus, shared a comprehensive overview of our development of CReST, a demand and capacity tool for CYP mental health pathways.

A few key points from our interactive session:
Children and young people's mental health and wellbeing systems are really complex to navigate. It’s challenging and there’s a lot of variation. They change quite often.
