View the competences for working in inpatient children and young people's mental health care.
About the framework
The NCCMH developed the multidisciplinary competence framework for delivering inpatient children and young people’s mental health care in partnership with UCL. A specially convened expert reference group that included people working in children and young people’s mental health inpatient care and people with lived experience guided the content.
The competence framework and supporting document are to be used by health workers, trainers and supervisors, clinical managers and commissioners of services. They are also useful for people using the services and their carers, because they lay out what can be expected from a good mental health inpatient service.
Health Education England (funded by the National Quality Improvement Taskforce for children and young people’s mental health inpatient services) commissioned this work.
