CHEAF (Child Health and Education Assessment Forum): a multi-disciplinary powwow for children

  • Christine Williams (a1), Barry Wright (a1) and Rob Smith (a1)
Extract

It has been recommended that child and adolescent mental health services operate on four tiers (NHS Health Advisory Service, 1995). Tier three represents specialist teams, where professionals work together to provide specialist services. Since additional resources have not been forthcoming to support such developments, existing teams frequently restructure themselves in order to operate in this way. One way of rationalising existing resources effectively is to establish interagency links so that multi-disciplinary working is not limited by professional boundaries. This can occur across as well as within teams.
