Good Practice

Phoenix Detached Youth Project was approached by CAMHS to see if we could create a resource for GPs. Some GPs had informed CAMHS they didn't feel confident talking to young people about mental health or found it difficult during short appointment times. Young people from Helping Hands suggested the idea of a film as it could be shown within the training session CAMHS deliver to GPs. Thanks to young people from all of the Helping Hands groups who contributed ideas on what they felt was positive or could be improved when seeing their GP. Caitlain, Isaac and Paige then took these suggestions and scripted and produced the film.  A leaflet is in the process of being produced which will contain information for young people and GPs. Thank you to Healthwatch North Tyneside for funding the production of the film, Dr Dawn Linford for her contribution and appearing in the film and to Robin Fry for helping to bring this to life and putting the film together
