Community mental health and wellbeing supports and services: framework

This framework sets out a clear broad approach for the support that children and young people should be able to access for their mental health and emotional wellbeing within their community.


56. Children's Services Partnerships or Community Planning Partnerships will be asked to monitor, evaluate and report on the provision of these supports and services on a basis to be agreed between the Scottish Government and COSLA and overseen by the Programme Board.

57. There will be evaluation, monitoring and reporting measures developed to support local partnerships. This will be designed to complement and work sensibly with any additional local monitoring. Measures will focus on some key statistics (which may be drawn in whole or part from national datasets) and outcomes based evaluation of the experience and journeys of children, young people and their families.

58. Outcome measures will be developed to reflect the views of children, young people and their families and we would anticipate that these are useful locally and inform local developments.
