Review SA CAMHS - 2014/2015

A comprehensive, independent review of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) in South Australia was undertaken in late 2014. Commissioned by SA Health, the review provided the opportunity to ensure integrated, safe and responsive child and mental health services are provided into the future.

The Review SA Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services focused on the governance, structures, partnerships and systems required for a contemporary mental health service.

The report includes 46 recommendations that will transform the way the service delivers mental health services to children, young people, perinatal woman and families across South Australia.

Input from a range of CAMHS staff, consumers, carers and stakeholders has been a significant part of the review process.

The recommendations are currently being implemented as part of a carefully planned and implemented change management strategy.

The transformation of our CAMHS service is a two-year project due for completion at the beginning of 2017. It will continue to be informed by feedback and our continuing engagement with staff, service providers and partners and consumers.
