Suffolk Children and Young People's Emotional Wellbeing Plan

Our vision is for children and young people in Suffolk to have the best start in life, enjoy good mental health, be resilient and productive, enjoy school, make friends, achieve their full potential and have positive and happy relationships.

In October 2015 Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) areas were required to develop a Local Transformation Plan (LTP) in response to the recommendations set out in the Future In Mind Report - promoting, protecting and improving our children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing, the report of the Government's Children and Young People’s Mental Health Taskforce in 2015.

Suffolk’s five-year transformation plan sets out how it will improve children and young people’s (0-25) emotional wellbeing and mental health by transforming services, changing the landscape in which services operate and upskilling the workforce. The plan was developed in collaboration with NHS Ipswich & East Suffolk CCG, West Suffolk CCG, Suffolk County Council, young people, families, health and care organisations, charities, and schools and is based on Five Big Ideas and Ten Priorities which we are working together to deliver.

Approved by the Suffolk Health and Wellbeing Board in October 2015, the plan is refreshed annually in October to provide an overview of progress against priorities and actions, spend and activity and future priorities and ambitions based on our local need.
