The aim of the Children and Young Peoples’ Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (CYP IAPT) programme is to improve both the effectiveness of treatment and the experiences of children, young people and parents in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)

Awareness is one of the five core principles of the CYP IAPT programme. The principle of Awareness is about actively increasing public understanding of the importance of emotional wellbeing and decreasing stigma and discrimination.

The Community of Practice supports the implementation of this principle into services through rigorous training of staff, social media and working with young people in training events
