Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services

Wigan Borough CCG and Wigan Council want to redesign child adolescent services to improve the quality of life for them and their families.

The vision is that Children, Young People and families of Wigan Borough are confident and resilient individuals who are connected to their communities and make an effective contribution as responsible citizens.  They feel safe and care about their health, education and employment, and their community.

Child and Mental Health Services are an important part of our children's services.  The redesign of these services will intend to:

  • have one team to contact to get access to all the different services, regardless of who provides them
  • work with schools and colleges to deliver services in schools
  • make sure GP practices can help more, earlier
  • work with the children's social care and youth justice system to help the most vulnerable children
  • work together to help children tackle eating disorders.
