Online referral form – we need your views

In 2021, Alder Hey Children`s Hospital, in partnership with Liverpool and Sefton CAMHS pioneered a unique, interoperable platform – an online CAMHS referral form.

Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) is looking to invite children, young people, parents/carers and professionals to take part in a discussion group to explore how this platform can meet their everyday needs in relation to mental health and emotional wellbeing. The groups will explore:

  • The perceptions of the platform
  • What would participants want from this platform?
  • What do communities require, to ensure their inclusion in these technologically developing services?

If you are:

  • 16- 19 years old.
  • Parents/carers of under 16-year-old children.
  • Mental health professionals who work with children and young people.

and you are interested in taking part in these groups, please email Kristof Santa (Research Assistant) – k.santa@ljmu.ac.uk 

The discussion groups will take place on 13th April 10 am – 12 pm* at Liverpool John Moores University, Tithebarn Building (School of Health) 81 Tithebarne St, Liverpool L2 2ER

Refreshments will be provided and participants will receive a £20 voucher. 

Data acquired via the focus groups from the research will be kept strictly confidential.

More information about the study can be found here.
