SCIE: Supporting younger people and their families


Transitions into and out of inpatient mental health settings are an important time for young people and their families. Providing expert support and taking enough time to plan, particularly at discharge, can give them the best chance of recovery.


A quick guide for mental health practitioners supporting young people has been published by SCIE to help practitioners work with young people to ensure that they are prepared for a planned admission and that their care and support after discharge is tailored to their needs.

It covers:

  • Planning for admission
  • Preparing for discharge
  • Care and support after discharge
  • Crisis planning
  • Information and support for parents and carers
