Measuring what matters in child and youth mental health: what’s a fair way to measure a service?

How can we compare different services in a fair way?

Are the measures we use meaningful to young people, or just to clinicians and managers?

Join us to discuss cutting edge developments in outcome measurement in child and youth mental health. Hear about the latest research and join our panel in debate about how we shape the future for responsive and evidenced care.

This seminar is open to mental health and education professionals, service leads, commissioners and anyone interested in the future of children and young people’s mental health services.

Goal in one? Using goals set with young people to understand progress

Access for who? Recent findings from measuring service access and ethnicity
