The Impact of the CAMHS Kerry Review and Maskey Report on caregiver’s views of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)
Please read the below information regarding research that you may wish to participate in:
Professor Fiona McNicholas and Dr. Laura Bond are both clinicians in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at University College Dublin and are conducting a research study to explore caregiver’s and clinicians’ views on CAMHS services in Ireland and whether this has changed since the publication of the CAMHS Kerry Review and Maskey Report.
You are being asked to take part in the study because either you are a caregiver of a child under the age of 18 and are currently or were previously linked in with mental health services (CAMHS, Jigsaw or Enable Ireland etc.) or you are a clinician working in CAMHS.
The study will consist of two stages. Stage 1 is an anonymous online survey and stage 2 is a face to face or online interview or focus group. Everyone will be invited to participate in stage 1 but only those who directly request the researchers will participate in stage 2.
For caregivers, this survey will ask you questions about your views on CAMHS and if this has changed since the South Kerry CAMHS Review and Maskey Report. For clinicians, the survey will ask you about your experience working in CAMHS and if this has changed since the Maskey Report.
In stage 2, we will ask similar questions but as these are interviews/focus groups it will allow more detailed answers and discussions.
