i-THRIVE: Supporting the delivery of mental health services for young people
i-THRIVE supports care providers to implement the THRIVE framework - an integrated, person-centred, and needs-led approach to delivering mental health services for children, young people and their families.
i-THRIVE supports care providers to implement the THRIVE framework – an integrated, person-centred, and needs-led approach to delivering mental health services for children, young people and their families.
We are collaborating with the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice to develop i-THRIVE which aims to spread use of the THRIVE framework across the country to ensure children with mental health problems are supported according to their individual needs, not simply according to their diagnosis.
Evidence has shown that using the THRIVE framework can reduce waiting times and improve experience of care – by accurately assessing patients the first time they ask for help, and more rapidly delivering the care that they need. We are working with over 70 locations in England to implement this framework. i-THRIVE is a national programme set up to generate a new needs based model for delivering child mental health services in England. It is a highly successful initiative which was incorporated in the NHS Long Term Plan and is currently referenced in over half of the Transformation Plans submitted to the NHSE/I Children and Young People (CYP) Mental Health policy team.
i-THRIVE is funded through a variety of subscriptions and grants.
