This chapter aims to guide the thinking of practitioners who might be involved in developing services to meet the needs of children and young people with mental health difficulties. Anyone involved in this challenging but vital endeavour will need to address the following questions: ♦ Who should the service be for? ♦ What sort of interventions should be provided? ♦ How should the service be structured? ♦ Who should the staff be? ♦ How can the service be made most accessible? ♦ How can service quality be ensured? This chapter will look at each of these issues in turn to explore how each might best be approached.
