unstar this property answer text <p /> <p>When sentencing a child or young person under the age 18, courts have a duty to have regard to the welfare of the offender, which includes their mental health.</p><p> </p><p>Youth Offending Teams provide courts with a pre-sentence report for each young person, including information about their mental health and any self-harming or risk taking behaviour. Where emotional and mental health issues have been identified, a referral to the mental health specialist worker should be made for completion of a Comprehensive Health Assessment Tool which will provide details about the support and type of intervention programme needed, tailored to their needs. The pre-sentence report should assess the potential impact of any custodial sentence imposed by the court (including the impact on mental health).</p><p> </p><p>In January 2014, the Government announced £25 million of funding for the Liaison and Diversion Programme, which will join up police and courts with mental health services and to fund the provision of mental health professionals to give prompt and appropriate treatment.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>This Programme, commissioned by NHS England, identifies, assesses and refers people of all ages with a wide range of mental health and other issues on first contact with the criminal justice system. A person assessed with single or multiple vulnerabilities will be referred to the appropriate treatment or support service and care and/or support will be instigated.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p /> <p>The Government is committed to providing emotional support to young people and young adults in Young Offender Institutions (YOIs). All young offender institutions and prisons are required to have procedures in place to identify, manage and support offenders in need of emotional support or at risk of harming themselves.</p><p> </p><p>These procedures include the Assessment, Care in Custody and Teamwork (ACCT) process which is an offender-centred, flexible care planning system designed to ensure that offenders at risk are managed in a way that is responsive to individual needs, including those related to age. A recent review of the ACCT process for young people made a number of recommendations that are being taken forward by the National Offender Management Service.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England provide a commissioned healthcare service to all YOIs which includes GPs, nurses and mental health professionals to support those with an identified physical or mental health need in custody. Support services provided under contract are equitable with those provided in the community.</p><p> </p><p>Healthcare services are supported by the chaplaincy team which offers a range of pastoral support services and by the Samaritans who provide free helpline access and train young offenders aged 18 and over to act as ‘Listeners’, that is, peer supporters for other young offenders who are in crisis.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>NHS England has responsibility for commissioning health services in young offenders’ institutions (YOIs). NHS England has worked closely with the Royal Colleges of Paediatrics and Child Health; General Practitioners; Nursing; Psychiatrists and Forensic Medicine and has used their standards for children and young people in secure settings as a basis for national service specifications for the health services commissioned in YOIs.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>A key component of this is that the service should deliver child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) which meet the emotional and mental health needs of children and young people accommodated within the secure setting, based on clinical need. Children in secure settings are entitled to service provision that is equivalent to that available for children living in the wider community, within the constraints of the secure environment.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>CAMHS cover early intervention, mental health promotion, prevention and treatment for the full range of mental health needs and care after discharge from a secure placement, including transfer to inpatient or adult services.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The CHAT (Comprehensive Health Assessment Tool) is used as a health screen for all children and young people entering the secure estate to assess individual health need and identify those needing a full mental health assessment.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>
