WORKFORCE

Empower everyone, particularly the ICYP and families’ workforce to effectively recognise and address ICYP’s mental health and wellbeing needs:

  • Advocating an overarching ICYP MH and WB workforce plan to include the roles of all those working with infants, children and young people and their families, including the roles of parents/carers and peer support
  • Supporting the inclusion of a wider and more diverse range of therapeutically trained staff in NHS-funded services
  • Promoting evidence-based, accessible parenting/carer and peer support strategies
