Your view and experiences are really valuable

The CAT (Children & Young People, Action & Transformation) group, was set up by young people who have experiences of mental health services in Suffolk.

Young people describe the CAT group as:

A meeting once a month to talk about the things important to us, the things we feel need changing within mental health services, and our views on support that we have received or are receiving- this includes our experiences of what works well, and what doesn’t

The group has a powerful influence in improving future Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), and other services, for children and young people in Suffolk. The young people in the CAT group have said why they enjoy taking part.

What makes an ideal worker? - is an example of something that the CAT developed and is now used by different services who provide support to young people in Suffolk.

The CAT group meetings are held from 5.00pm - 7.00pm at Endeavour House Ipswich, the last Wednesday of each month and food is provided.

If you want to go along or just want some more information about the group, get in touch:

Please let us know if you plan to come along, or if you would like to meet up beforehand (that's fine :)) - we look forward to meeting you.
