Transformational Plan for mental health in children and young people

Future in Mind Strategy 2021 – 2022

‘Future in Mind’ Promoting Protecting and Improving our Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing is a national initiative based on transforming children and young people services. In response to this, local partners from across Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland, have refreshed the children and young people’s transformation plan.

Over the last year we have faced exceptional challenges due to the Covid pandemic and whilst ensuring we maintained access to services  through innovative blended models of care, prioritised those in need of urgent care and redeployed staff, we have successfully implemented new services and enhanced existing services to meet the needs of C&YP in LLR.

We implemented;

  • Triage and Navigation Service
  • 24/7 Mental Health Central Access Point
  • 24/7 Mental Health Urgent Care Hub
  • Increased provision for C&YP presenting with complex needs in crisis
  • Increased provision for C&YP with an eating disorder by implementing Home Treatment Pilot
  • Expanded the Early Intervention Service
  • Implemented Online Self help portal for University students
  • Implemented Community Chill Out Zone

The collaborative refreshed plan 2021 – 2022 builds on last year’s ambitions and sets out our forward planning to continue to transform C&YP Emotional, mental health and wellbeing services as an integrated care system (ICS).

A key focus of our work in 2021/ 22 as we transition to an Integrated Care System (ICS) will be to strengthen the alignment of our C&YP emotional mental health and wellbeing (EMHWB) transformation plan. The ICS will be formed to enable true integration with partners and to develop collaborative responsibility for managing resources, delivering care, and improving C&YP EMHWB across LLR’s system, places and neighbourhoods

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our provider partners, colleagues, stakeholders, schools and, in particular our local C&YP and families for their continued dedicated support and contributions over the past year, and for the energy they bring to help shape local provision for all C&YP across LLR.
