Abstract

Aim
The partnership examined how young people, family members and workers benefitted from a co-produced Arts initiative which was established to enhance participants’ mental health outcomes.

Objectives
To utilise a co-production approach to assess the sustainability of a group-based Arts project (IMPACT) for CAMHS service users in Belfast Health and Social Care Trust NI. The group had already been initiated prior to the collaboration between QUB and CAMHS.

To gauge the group members’ self-reported improvement in their social interaction skills, coping skills and engagement with school and family via an audit evaluation.

To conduct a small scale impact audit of the programme in order to provide the basis for roll out of the project across other Statutory CAMHS programmes in NI and the UK.

It was anticipated that the partnership would also have a corollary effect on the lives of the family members. It was hoped that the family unit would benefit from any improvement in social skills and resilience that the project engendered in the young people.
