London Youth Offending Teams Mental Health Mapping
The mapping of CAMHS YOT health workers in London was completed over the Summer 2009. You can view this or download this report by clicking HERE
The aim of the report was to provide a London wide baseline with regard to specialist staff in teams, information about case vulnerabilities and offence profile, supervision and support and to identify gaps and training needs. Partnerships are asked to consider the report and look at the comparative information to identify how services to this challenging and vulnerable group can be improved. One key gap which has been identified is services for young people with a 'forensic' profile who are at risk of committing violent crimes or ones involving sexual abuse.
A unique system of care & other supports provided to children & adolescents with complex mental health & behavioral needs who are at risk of placement out-of-their home in residential treatment, psychiatric in-patient centers or juvenile correctional facilities. It serves 1,400 children, adolescents and their families annually.
