Turning the Tide is Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly’s local transformation plan. The plan updates and replaces the joint children and child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) strategy implementation plan 2015/20, issued in October 2015.
At its heart the plan aims to improve the emotional wellbeing and mental health of all our children and young people, to build their resilience and to ensure that those who experience emotional wellbeing and mental health problems get the right help at the right time.
The transformation plan, captures contributions from a wide range of sources and emphasises the importance of promoting emotional wellbeing, and sets out how we need to use our collective resources and assets appropriately to ensure positive whole system change that minimises harm, prevents escalation and promotes recovery. We want to ensure that all agencies that support children and their families work effectively together, in ways that are helpful and make sense to children and their families.
In October 2017 an interim update (PDF, 223 KB) on progress was issued and a further full plan refresh is planned.
NHS Kernow has commissioned a number of partners to work with them on the transformation process, bringing together a number of different resources to support those looking for help and support summarised here:
NHS Kernow has improved its Hear our Voice project. We have involved young people in the transformation process by delivering the participation priorities of the children and young people’s improving access to psychological therapies (IAPT).
