Episode 1 – Meet the Service User Participation Group

Welcome to the FIRST episode of the CAMHS Talk podcast – and we are so very excited to be able to bring you the very best interviews and discussions between the service professionals and our very knowledgeable service users. We have trawled the internet and (so far) haven’t found another Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) that have brought together their service users and their professionals in this way. This is such a good opportunity for us all to discuss and debate issues around child and adolescent mental health and it’s such a pleasure for us to share this with you.

In this episode, Niki Scott and Aisling Callaghan talk to four service users about the role of the user participation group, the benefits of being part of the group and how they help shape the service. During the discussion, the service users also discuss and reflect on how they have found benefit for themselves in being able to shape the service.

So sit back and listen.. it’s an interesting discussion..
