Turning the Tide on CAMHS in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is the transformation plan for child and adolescent mental health services. The plan updates and replaces the Joint CAMHS Strategy Implementation Plan 2015-20, issued in October 2015.

At its heart the plan aims to improve the emotional wellbeing and mental health of all our children and young people, to build their resilience and to ensure that those who experience emotional wellbeing and mental health problems get the right help at the right time. 

The transformation plan, which was developed with young people and their parents, emphasises the importance of promoting emotional wellbeing, by providing high quality advice and guidance and information about where to get help using digital technology, telephone and face to face contact. We want to ensure that all agencies that support children and their families work effectively together, in ways that are helpful and make sense to children and their families.

This infographic was created by young people who were involved in the CAMHS Transformation Plan.  The "Turning the Tide" document is the plan to transform the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.  Young people from the CAMHS YP Board wanted to put this large plan into a concise young person friendly one page guide - outlining the plans for mental health services for children & young people in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly over the next few years.
