Evaluation of the Choice and Partnership Approach in Child and Adolescent MH Services in England


The Mental Health Foundation was commissioned by the National CAMHS Support Service to evaluate how the Choice and Partnership Approach (CAPA) was implemented by CAMHS teams across England. This report describes the evaluation. The research team collected information through a combination of surveys and interviews.

This project is now complete and the report is available to download. A peer reviewed journal has also been published:
