Anecdotally the view of service provision is that current services are not well integrated. It is unclear which service to refer into and service users report long waits between referral and treatment. Families comment that they deal with multiple agencies that do not appear to be working jointly. Equally some services are fragmented and not necessarily focused on the most vulnerable groups. A vision for child and adolescent mental health services is required identifying opportunities for providers and commissioners to work more closely together.
