We are working with Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust as the North London Mental Health Partnership.

Islington Transitions Meeting

The Islington Transitions 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 risk in the context of their mental health needs.
Senior clinicians from CAMHS, adult mental health services and other young people’s services in Islington 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 is for professionals only and takes place fortnightly on Thursdays 9.30 – 10.30am on Microsoft Teams. It is open to professionals from all agencies. 
The transitions team are a non-case holding team. We will not speak or work directly with the young people discussed at the meeting. 
There is a psychologist based within the Personality Disorder Service to champion the cause of young people, help develop a more young-people friendly environment, and 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 the Islington Transitions Meeting.

The young person must be an Islington resident, between the ages of 17 and 24, and must give their consent to be discussed at the Islington Transitions Meeting.

Presenting at the Islington Transitions Meeting:
We allow twenty minutes per case discussion. This includes ten minutes for the referring clinician to present. It is helpful to include the following: 
•    Current presenting difficulties 
•    What the young person wants/is looking for/wants to work on
•    What are the network’s concerns
•    Psychiatric history – diagnosis, previous assessments/interventions & their outcomes
•    Risk, substance use, forensic history 
•    Family, social, support set-up
•    Developmental & personal history 
•    Education, employment, future plans
There is then ten minutes for all attendees in the meeting to ask questions and discuss which service(s) would be the best options for support for the young person and their family. The discussion is noted and will be shared with you usually the following day. 
If you have any questions in the meantime, please do get in touch via email. 

  • 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.
