Young people have told us that in Wales, the move from specialist child to adult mental health services isn’t working. Their voices need to change the system for the better. Right now.
To Sort the Switch, the Welsh government must:
• Listen to and act on the voices of young people in Specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (SCAMHS)
• Make sure national guidance is delivered, and young people get the help they’re entitled to
• Better support young people when they leave SCAMHS, and help make the move to adult services a positive step in recovery
• Change the way services are run, to better involve young people’s voices
