We are pleased to launch data collection for the 2019 Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services project. 

The benchmarking project allows participants to understand the relationship between demand and capacity, a features a full range of metrics including service models, access, activity, workforce, finance and quality measures.

In response to the NHS Long Term Plan the Network’s well-established projects on Mental Health Inpatient and Community services and CAMHS provide a range of evidence to support providers in effectively managing their services, including waiting time targets. National data on IAPT and Dementia services is sourced by the Network to support our projects

This project is open to all Network members' who provide CAMHS. The 2018 CAMHS benchmarking project was the largest ever with 107 organisations providing data from across the UK.

The data collection deadline is the 15th July 2018. Following a comprehensive validation process, participants will receive access to a benchmarking toolkit of over 5,000 metrics, receive a bespoke report, and be invited to attend a national conference in October to hear about good practice and innovation in the field of mental health and findings from the 2019 project.
