The liaison model: A guide to mental health services for children and adolescents

  • Sebastian Kraemer (a1) and colleagues (a1)
Abstract

This paper puts the case for accessible multidisciplinary mental health services for children and young people to managers, purchasers and GPs, in a framework of national and international statutes and guidance. The essential differences between the disciplines are explained, based on detailed advice from mental health colleagues in nursing, teaching, social work, psychology, child psychotherapy and child and adolescent psychiatry.
