Healthwatch Calderdale is working on a project to source the views of people with experiences of local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
They have been working with families on a one-to-one basis and are now seeking further views on the services for children displaying signs of autistic spectrum condition (ASC), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or attention deficit disorder (ADD).
Healthwatch believes that in sharing your experiences, anonymously, they can help make a positive difference. They will share these stories with the CAMHS service provider and the commissioner (Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group), to ensure people’s voices are heard, highlighting the issues raised and making recommendations for positive change.
To have your say please complete this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CAMHS

Thursday 20 June is Clean Air Day and it’s a great chance to do your bit and help make the air cleaner and healthier for everyone.
Air pollution is real and harms the health of millions. But there are lots of simple things we can do to improve air quality and look after our own and other people’s health.
Clean Air Day is a chance to find out more about air pollution, share information with friends and colleagues, and help make the air cleaner and healthier for everyone.
Why not help to spread the Clean Air message by pledging to make a small change on the 20 June, for example walking, cycling or taking public transport to work and leaving the car at home.
Post your plans on your twitter accounts and don’t forget to hashtag your messages and pictures with #LetsClearTheAir so that they can be displayed on the Clean Air Day website.
You can also use #CleanAirDay and remember, the Clean Air Day campaign is not just for one day – why not pledge to make the small change as regularly as you can?
