DCSF: Effectiveness of child and adolescent mental health (CAMHS) services as at December 2009

DescriptionNational Indicator 51 is part of the National Indicator Set used to measure annual performance at Local Authority, Goverment Office Region and national level. It measures key aspects of service provision that should be in place locally to effectively meet the needs of children and young people with mental health problems. The psychological health and wellbeing of children and young people is a joint priority for the Department for Children, Schools and Families and the Department of Health. This is reflected in Public Service Agreement 12 - Child Health and Wellbeing and specifically in the measurement of success for this indicator, the Effectiveness of CAMHS, and forms part of the National Indicator Set for Local Authorities (NI51) and the Vital Signs indicator set for Primary Care Trusts (VSB12). The indicator measures Local Authorities' self-assessment across the country against four questions, covering a range of areas of provision, each with a 1-4 rating. This generates a total possible score of 16. The last NI 51 results for services as at 31 December 2008 were published in August 2009. This publication refers to services as at 31 December 2009.
