Experiences and views on the Children and Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Early Intervention and Prevention Pathway


Early intervention is defined as identifying and providing early support to children and young people who are at risk of poor outcomes such as mental health. Such early intervention supports the prevention of worsening health and can have major societal benefits.


In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, services are commissioned to provide early support and intervention for mental health and emotional wellbeing to children and young people, aged up to 25 years, as well as training for professionals. Commissioners are now looking to understand the views of the community and improve this pathway.

The Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG would like to gain the views of young people, parents/carers and professionals to understand experiences and report on what support has been like for them at the early intervention stage. These insights will be collated in a report to help shape the future mental health and early intervention and prevention pathway for children and young people.

Kindly note that all engagement will end on Friday 18th September 2020.
