Welcome to the OO-CAMHS website. It contains everything you need to know about developing an outcomes orientated approach to setting up or delivering a CAMH Service. We hope you find it helpful.

What is OO-CAMHS?
Outcome Orientated Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services
OO-CAMHS draws on a large international evidence base that has consistently shown certain extra-therapeutic factors (such as social context) and intra-therapeutic factors (such as therapeutic relationship) are most likely to influence outcome. OO-CAMHS is the first UK based CAMHS development that is designed to incorporate this evidence into a whole service model that can improve outcomes for children, adolescents and their families at the same time as maximising efficient use of resources.
Four CORE guiding principles underpin the OO-CAHMS approach:
OO-CAMHS co-developers Sami Timimi and Dianne Tetley and won an East Midlands NHS Regional Innovation champions Award in 2012
OO-CAMHS Lincoln runners up in BMJ Mental Health Team of the year Award in 2015
