Region: International (other)
Description:

Current policy in the UK and elsewhere places emphasis on the provision of mental health services in the least restrictive setting, whilst also recognising that some children will require inpatient care. As a result, there are a range of mental health services to manage young people with serious mental health problems who are at risk of being admitted to an inpatient unit in community or outpatient settings.

The objectives of this review are:
 
1. To assess the effectiveness, acceptability and cost of mental health services that provide an alternative to inpatient care for children and young people.
 
2. To identify the range and prevalence of different models of service that seek to avoid inpatient care for children and young people.
