Mental Health Awareness
What is CAMHS?
CAMHS is the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. CAMHS
promotes emotional well-being and delivers preventative services and
treatment to children and young people with mental health problems.

CAMHS is a partnership between Surrey County Council, Surrey’s Primary
Care Trust, NHS delivery trusts for mental health and voluntary organisations.

Surrey CAMHS is more than a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service.
Health, education, social care and voluntary organisations contribute to the
service to ensure it is multi-disciplinary and delivers excellent results to all its
users. Delivery of the strategy takes place at a local level through Local
Implementation Groups who are accountable to the countywide strategy
group and are represented on it.

How do we work?

We work in different ways with people, depending on their needs.

We support teachers, youth workers and people working with children and
young people

      By giving training and advice around how to spot mental health
      By offering advice about how to create an environment that helps
       prevent emotional difficulties developing

Everybody’s Business Training
Everybody’s Business is a training resource for all front-line staff who work
with young people, but who are not mental health specialists. It is a national
core training course which is aimed at increasing mental health awareness
including an overview of what mental health is, how CAMHS are structured,
mental health problems and disorders and what helps children and young
people who have developed mental health problems. The training is delivered
via an online training package. This e-learning will be supported by area-
based twilight sessions which will be rolled out across the county over the
next two years and will be delivered by CAMHS staff.
Outcomes of the training
Aims of the training

   To generate an awareness of the contributory factors to mental health and
    ill health.
   To foster a climate in which the positive and negative aspects of diagnosis,
    naming and labeling can be explored.
   To enhance confidence in identifying mental health problems and develop
    an understanding of more serious disorders that require specialist
   To promote a shared understanding of how the tiered system works and
    how it can be integrated with the levels of service described in Every Child
   To develop an awareness of local services and their contribution.
   To explore the issues involved in inter-agency working
   To encourage personal and professional efficacy in working within the
    CAMHS structure and local systems.
   To reinforce existing competence in working with young people and
   To build confidence in working with mental health problems.

Learning outcomes for participants
By the end of the course, participants should be able to:

   Provide a definition of mental health.
   Begin to discriminate between being psychologically healthy and mentally
   List and begin to expand upon those factors within the child, the family and
    the environment that increase the risk of / resilience to mental health
   Name the common mental health problems and disorders occurring in
    children and adolescents.
   Highlight the positive and negative aspects of naming and labeling.
   Show familiarity with the diagnostic categories in ICD-10
   Demonstrate an understanding of those mental health problems that may
    be considered less serious and can be treated at tier 1.
   Discriminate between less serious mental health problems and more
    serious, enduring and complex problems and disorders requiring
    intervention from specialist CAMHS.
   Describe the four tiers of CAMHS, specifying the relationship to universal,
    targeted and specialist levels, as described in ECM.
   Delineate clearly the role of the tier 1 practitioner in relation to CAMHS.
   Produce a summary (written and/or graphic) of local services within the
    tiered structure.
   Evaluate their own role as tier 1 practitioners.
   Demonstrate their skill in speaking, listening and observing.
   Discuss knowledgeably what works in working with children and young
   Show an awareness of their own areas for skills development and future
    training needs.

An evaluation of the outcomes of the training will be undertaken by CAMHS.

How to access the training
If you are interested in going forward with this training you will need to contact
your manager who will provide you with the necessary details to allow you to
register on the Everybody’s Business online course. The twilight sessions to
support the e-learning will run in different areas over the course of the next 2
years and the exact programme is currently being drawn up. It is likely that
the first will be in the autumn in the North West (either based at Camberley or
Woking Connexions Centres).
