SCIE Research briefing 37: Mental health service transitions for young people – UK – May 2011

By Isabelle Brodie, Rebecca Goldman and Janet Clapton

Published: May 2011

“This briefing looks at recent research literature (since 2000) on the move from child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) to adults’ services for young people with psychological, emotional or behavioural problems, referred to as ‘mental health service transitions’. Young people may move to adult mental health services (AMHS) or need alternative support in young adulthood. Despite evidence of some promising and innovative practice, this is an issue of longstanding concern to young people, their families, practitioners and policy-makers, both in the UK and abroad.

This briefing asks:

What do professionals, young people, parents, carers and families think about mental health service transitions and what has their experience been?
What evidence is there for good practice and service models in supporting successful service transitions?”
