What should members expect to contribute to CORC?

  3. To share ideas, experiences and developments with other members to help us learn from each other

CORC Members Forum November 2019

Sign up to the CORC Forum: Outcomes for All? Finding a common language for child and youth mental health, 21st November

The publication of a new national outcome metric for youth mental health is imminent. The implementation of Mental Health Support Teams is driving more outcome measurement in schools and colleges. The calls on mental health support are increasing and diversifying. Can our outcome measurement approaches answer this challenge?

We share young people’s responses to these developments, the latest position from NHS England, service innovation from our members, new CORC research, and learning from the international arena. Join our 2019 Forum to be inspired by advances in thinking and practice. Contribute to the debate, and to ensuring our evidence can support improved wellbeing for all children and young people.


Associate Members can get 1 free ticket
