This guide describes good quality mental health transitions services for young people making the transition from child and adolescent to adult services.
It also describes the benefits of transitions services and explains why a transitions service is important for the commissioners of specialist mental health services.
The guide has been written by a group of CAMHS/transitions experts. It will be of value to Clinical Commissioning Groups (as they will be commissioning secondary services) and the NHS Commissioning Board (NHS England from 01 April 2013), as some patients in CAMHS Tier 4 will be affected.
