Public involvement

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Surveillance System

CAPSS actively encourages the involvement of support groups.

Applicants are encouraged to approach relevant support or public involvement groups to inform them of the proposed study and, where possible, involve them in it. Researchers may wish to produce a public information leaflet including information about the condition and the study which can be distributed to relevant groups / organisations (where appropriate).

You may find the following resources useful when considering public involvement:

Contact a Family - advice, information and support to the parents of all disabled children

INVOLVE - promoting and supporting active public involvement in NHS, public health and social care research.

PALS - Patient Advice and Liaison Service: providing information, advice and support to help patients, families and their carers. 


Young Minds – Young Minds is the UK's only national charity committed to improving the mental health and emotional well-being of all children and young people.


Please note that although the CAPSS is keen to involve the public, it acknowledges that the level of involvement may vary depending upon the nature of the study.
