Book Description

Participation in Children and Young People's Mental Health: An Essential Guide aims to break down the historical challenges surrounding children and young people's mental health (CYPMH) participation.

It explores topics from how to conceptualise participation to more practical advice and guidance surrounding how to 'do' participation. Uniquely edited by Experts-by-Experience, it offers useful insights to how participation ought to be led from those with experience in the field. This ground-breaking text is supported by contributors from leading experts, including a mixture of lived experience and academic persepctives, providing a comprehensive dive into key concepts and practical examples to help improve practice. The chapters aim to spark thinking, conversations, and actions in participation and will provide lessons to embed into services, organisations, areas, groups, practice, and work.

This text is an essential guide for trainees and professionals working in CYPMH services which includes the NHS in England, voluntary sector, and other health systems internationally.
