Abstract

This paper describes and discusses the evaluation of an innovative child and adolescent mental health project located in a large county in eastern England.

Traditional specialist CAMH services are overwhelmed by demand while also failing to engage many young people. This study provides evidence of how new services can develop to meet the needs of troubled young people in appropriate and acceptable ways.
