Two new resources to support commissioning effective, seamless transitional mental health services for young people have been published.

The new Model Specification for Transitions from Child and Adolescent Mental Health
Services (CAMHS) builds on previous specifications and can be adapted locally to reflect the multi-agency nature of commissioning and delivering these services. A sample transition discharge from and transfer of care protocol has also been developed that can be inserted into the NHS Standard contract to help improve support for young people leaving CAMHS.

Both tools are based on a range of quality standards and best practice and are non-mandatory.
