Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service

A Working Group looking into Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAHMS) in Sefton has been set up.

Sefton Council’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee (Children’s Services and Safeguarding) has established the group and are keen to speak with parents or guardians who are or who have accessed the service.

Councillors on the committee and members of Healthwatch will form part of the working group.

There are various ways in which parents or guardians can share their views and experiences:

• As part of a group with parents and guardians; or
• Individually; or
• By way of a written submission.

All information provided will be anonymous.

Anyone interested in sharing their views and experiences of the service are invited to contact Ruth Harrison, Senior Democratic Services Officer, by either telephone or e-mail: 0151 934 2042 or
