How do we become exemplars in looking after the Wellbeing and Mental Health of our Children and Young People’s Mental Health Workforce in the South West?
What is the support offer to the workforce and what practical steps can be recommended to implement this in the South West?
Following the South West Senate Council deliberation regarding the workforce challenge in the South West on 1st February 2018, it was suggested by the Senate Council that the original workforce recommendations could be developed further and with a particular focus on the mental health workforce. The Children and Young People’s (CYP) Mental Health Clinical Network developed the above question for the Clinical Senate to consider in relation to the following core recommendations from the February workforce deliberation.
- Co-ordinated National Strategy
- Focus on Retention
- Investment in the Social Care Workforce
