Alliance CYPF Team work in partnership with other local CAMHS services as part of a whole system approach (ITHRIVE) to the transformation of CYP mental health services.

MHSTs and the local Getting Help offer will support children, young people and families to maintain good mental health and wellbeing and help when children and families face normal ‘ups and down’s of life (Thriving) providing advice and support if needed (Getting Advice and Signposting) providing more structured support (Getting Help) and more extensive support (Getting More Help) and providing multi-agency support for children who cannot receive support any other way (Getting Risk support).

I-Thrive Framework – The THRIVE Framework for system change (Wolpert et al., 2019) is an integrated, person centred and needs led approach to delivering mental health services for children, young people and their families that was developed by a collaboration of authors from the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. It conceptualises need in five categories; Thriving, Getting Advice and Signposting, Getting Help, Getting More Help and Getting Risk Support. Emphasis is placed on prevention and also the promotion of mental health and wellbeing across the whole population. Children, young people and their families are empowered through active involvement in decisions about their care through shared decision making, which is fundamental to the approach.
