Mental health patients in Norfolk to benefit from online plan
Young people being treated for mental health problems will be able to use an online tool to help improve their care.
CAMHSweb is soon to be trialled by Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, which is an interactive resource aimed at school age children in West Norfolk as part of a Department of Health-funded project, reports The Lynn News.
Within the platform are a number of online tools that are aimed to help young people along with their therapist, explore their strengths, feeling, relationships and work on personal goals.
Dr Jessica Austin, Lead Clinical Psychologist with the West Norfolk Family and Young Person’s Service, said: “This exciting project will make a huge difference to the recovery of many young people across west Norfolk, and we are delighted to be taking part in the pilot. CAMHSweb is a fantastic tool which helps young people feel more in control of their mental health care. It gives them the chance to personalise their treatment and express their thoughts in a variety of different ways. For example, they can doodle their goals and create avatars of the people in their lives, then, using one of the tools they can place them on a target showing how close and how supportive they are to the individual’s recovery. It is a very graphical and creative way of helping young people.”
