Parents' View On A Beneficial CAMH Service

Parents were asked if they felt that their child had benefited from the

services/treatment that they received from CAMHS. Across the five trusts 95

per cent of responses (35) indicated that parents felt that their children had

benefited from involvement with CAMHS.

It should be noted that 100 per cent of responses from the Belfast, Northern,

Southern and Western trusts felt that they had benefited. Only one of the 11

parents in the South Eastern trust area did not find CAMHS beneficial.
