This section of our website explains how children and young people’s mental health services will be transformed over the next five years.

In Spring 2014 clinical commissioning groups in Berkshire West asked service users, schools, doctors and mental health workers what they thought about local mental health services.

Easy read version of transformation plan for service users.


This work was followed in March 2015 with a report by the government's Children and Young People’s Mental Health Taskforce, called Future in Mind. The report provided a structure for changes Berkshire West CCGs were planning.

Our vision for West Berkshire is to ensure that every child or young person gets the help they need when and where they need it. To find out more, click the links below.
