Camden Minding the Gap Meeting

The Camden Minding the Gap Meeting is a fortnightly meeting for professionals that facilitates young people’s transition from agencies working with young people, (including Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) into adult mental health services. We also review cases in adult services where there is concern about young people disengaging from services and/or risky behaviours in the context of their mental health needs.
Senior clinicians from CAMHS, adult mental health services and young people’s services in Camden attend the fortnightly meeting to assist referrers in developing a management plan for young people transitioning into adult mental health services. The case discussion meeting for professionals takes place fortnightly on Thursdays, 9.30 – 10.30am on Microsoft Teams and is open to professionals from all agencies. 
In addition, clinicians are based within specific teams to champion the cause of young people and help develop a more young-people friendly environment. They assist both with transition from CAMHS and work with young adults coming into services for the first time. Access to Transition Champions will be via this forum or via the specific teams.
  • Transition Champions are based within key services to provide additional support 
  • The fortnightly case discussion forum brings together key senior professionals from CAMHS / AMHS to ensure that prompt and effective decision-making for complex cases can take place
  • There is a ‘no bounce’ and ‘no delay’ principle in place ensuring that young people’s needs are effectively assessed, prioritised and managed across agencies.
