Many families who have children with Autism Asperger’s ADHD and are dealing with behaviour difficulties but most alarming are having suicidal tendencies A and E departments at local hospital as telling families who taken their children there that unless they are actually going to commit suicide there is nothing that can be done , these families are struggling accessing support,

These children need your help , we as a charity I feel it is important that we address these issues and work in partnership to create a mental health transformation group to develop new ways of working which will improve how services are referred to and accessed

Thou we have made contact with councillors decision makers as yet nothing is been done , please sign this petition to bring about positive changes

Below is just some of the thinhgs that need to happen

PEACE of Minds 10 aims

1, Every A&E and children's ward to have a CAMHS trained nurse on shift at all times.

2 CAMHS to have national standards for services. For example wrap around care and on -call to be 24 hours nationally.

3 Money that is allocated to CAMHS from NHS England to be ring-fenced and accounted for.

4 That every child that is referred to CAMHS receives an Assessment entry appointment within at least 6 weeks ( urgent should be within a week )

5 That every child that needs an inpatient bed receives one locally.

6 Outreach services to include day centres, respite care and a safe space to be and a therapeutic environment.

7 Every school to have a trained and dedicated person for mental health, with mental wellbeing and mental health first aid to be on the curriculum.

8 Parents to have a local support network and a single point of access to services for the whole family, ( this is really important as so many families feel isolated and struggle to access services).

9 Third sector charity's to be given the funding necessary to support the services and the users ( This would enable services like ours to reach more families and support them on their long journey )

10 Clear pathway for treatment for every young person from school, GP, CAMHS ,third sector , tier 4 and beyond.
