New national guidance: our starting point Parity of esteem: with physical health and adult mental health Targets and standards: equal treatment to those for adults, BUT recognising the difference for CYP and not disadvantaging/penalising CYP due to age difference.

Key proposal . A response from a mental health emergency service within one hour of receiving a referral. Within four hours of receiving the referral the child or young person should have been

appropriately assessed and Have a care and/or safety plan in place, and at a minimum be enroute to their next location (if geographically different) or Have been accepted and scheduled for followup care by a responding service, or Have been discharged as there is no further need for emergency mental health care. What CYP told us: Strong

Strong support for time scales support for a crisis intervention service Very keen on continuity: i.e. triage, assessment, crisis intervention, longer term care and treatment together, rather than all- age hospital-based liaison service

Very keen to be seen at a range of alternatives to the ED
