Young people will be able to have their say about the running of mental health services in the county under a new scheme.

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) will be working with young people throughout Hertfordshire to help find ways to improve the quality of the service.

The scheme is called Closing the Gap and is run with the help from Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s CAMHS services.

The aim of the project is to make sure young people are involved in their recovery and the decisions which are being made about the mental health.

Doctors involved in the project hope it will be a chance for clinical staff and young people to learn from each other about mental health and find ways to improve services.
