More about the Faculty

The focus of Faculty work is to improve the mental wellbeing of children, young people and their families. You can read more about the Faculty on our webpages. 

The executive committee meets four times a year in Edinburgh or via MS Teams to discuss a range of issues relating to the specialty of Child & Adolescent psychiatry and CAMHS services.  The committee is made up of psychiatrists from across Scotland.  There is an annual conference in November. 

Participation consultants are expected to contribute by attending and contributing to the executive committee meetings and working with other committee members to complete pieces of work, such as input into consultation documents and College papers.  Opportunities arise for involvement with the annual conference, communications and the media. 

RCPsych has developed a high media profile and is a leading organisation in terms of equality and diversity. It was a recent winner of Charity of the Year at the European Diversity Awards. This is an excellent opportunity for those with lived experience of CAMHS to contribute their perspectives on important mental health issues for children and young people and be part of our ongoing strategy and communications development.
