Child and Adolescent Mental Health Needs Based Grouping

A Child and Adolescent Mental Health Needs Based Grouping is a CARE CLUSTER.

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Needs Based Groupings are groupings that categorise the need for advice or help of children, young people and/or families referred to a SERVICE.

A Child and Adolescent Mental Health Needs Based Grouping should be assigned via a process of shared decision making between the SERVICE provider and the PATIENT or Patient Proxy. The decision, undertaken by a CARE PROFESSIONAL, may be helped by using an algorithm that was created to develop the groupings.

For further information on the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Needs Based Groupings and the assignment process, see "A Guide to Choosing Needs-Based Groupings in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services to Inform Payment Systems".
