Project title: Designing and implementing a Youth Mental Health Service.
The aim of the project was to implement an evidence-based service redesign of the Youth Mental Health Service (YMHS) for Norfolk. The process was through a review of the current literature, then taken forward through an iterative consultative process with local stakeholders, patient groups, commissioners and senior management in the NHS Foundation Trust. Through this process, an evolving vision and proposed service model was developed which gained widespread agreement and common ownership.
