The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

Welcome to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Surveillance System (CAPSS)

CAPSS

 

 

 


CAPSS is going electronic! A phased roll out of an easy to use electronic system will begin from this September onwards. By the end of the year everyone, will be reporting via an easy online system, a link to which will be emailed to CAPSS members every month.

 

CAPSS, the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Surveillance System, was officially launched in April 2009 and is based within the College Centre for Quality Improvement (CCQI). CAPSS assists clinicians and researchers in ascertaining nationally cases of rare childhood mental health conditions. 

 

CAPSS aims to:

  • facilitate epidemiological surveillance and research into uncommon child and adolescent mental health conditions;
  • increase awareness within the medical profession and public alike of the less common psychiatric disorders that afflict children;
  • allow psychiatrists to participate in surveillance of such conditions.

This website will tell you more about the work of CAPSS, the clinicians who make this work possible and how to use the systems as an investigator.

 

We hope you find the following information useful:

 

For immediate enquiries contact: Dr Alan Quirk, CAPSS Manager of Operations.
Email: capss@rcpsych.ac.uk
Telephone:  +44 (0)20 3701 2690

 

It is important that you return the yellow cards, even if you have nothing to report.

 

If you would like to inform us of previous months' ‘NOTHING TO REPORT’ status, please contact us. This helps CAPSS to maintain a good response rate. Thank you.
