Abstract

This paper describes the NewCan practice framework that is designed to enable professionals from a range of agencies (health care, education, social services) to utilise evidence on risk and protective factors in child and adolescent mental heath (CAMH) in order that they can: . assess the child and family needs using a common evidence base and shared language to communicate across all agencies involved in the care of the child; . enhance local capacity to respond to the needs of these children by identify ing resources/services available locally which can enhance protective factors and reduce risk; . develop a plan of intervention shared by all agencies involved in the care of the child, including the child’s contribution and that of their family/carers to the realisation of the plan. The framework was designed to help practitioners across agencies to identify the most effective combination of universal, targeted and clinical services for each child/family and community that can be configured to respond to the risk and protective factors within the local socio-cultural context. This paper describes the development of the framework and includes some preliminary experiences from professionals and parents who have used the framework in practice.
