Wirral youngsters have their say about the future of their mental health services

A group of young people using local child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) took part in a recent engagement session to ensure that their voices are heard in the future development of mental health services in Wirral. The youngsters, all involved in Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust's (CWP) Wirral CAMHS Sservice, were asked to have their say about Wirral's Children and Young People's Mental Health Transformation Plan; a local initiative led by Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) based on Future in Mind, the government's new national strategy for child mental health.

Sandra Renga, CWP Wirral CAMHS Clinical Psychologist, said:- "It's fantastic that we have been able to work in partnership with the CCG to give our young people the voice to shape future mental health services. We know that 50% of all chronic mental health difficulties are present before the age of 14, and 75% by 25. Clearly, it's absolutely vital that we listen to our young people and build our services around their needs."

The engagement session, led by local graphic facilitation agency, DeadCatDreaming, encouraged the young service users to think creatively about what they wanted from their mental health services and how this can be achieved. They were then asked to collaboratively design a piece of artwork to help make the CCG's transformation plan a family friendly document.

Christine Campbell, Head of Partnerships at Wirral CCG, said:- "It is vitally important to us that children and young people have the opportunity to shape local mental health services, and we are committed to promoting positive mental health and wellbeing. We hope that this project will be one of many opportunities to engage with the people who use or have an interest in our services, and we would like to thank those that took part for their enthusiasm and support."

Balkan Holidays to offer Summer 2017 departure from LJLA

LIVERPOOL John Lennon Airport is delighted to announce the return of another holiday operator to the Airport with the news that Bulgarian specialist operator Balkan Holidays is to operate to the Black Sea resorts of Bulgaria with a weekly departure to Bourgas for Summer 2017. Balkan Holidays last operated from Liverpool 10 years ago and this latest addition to the growing list of airlines and operators to fly from Liverpool, gives the region's holidaymakers even more choice of destinations to choose from, with the added convenience of flying from their local airport. On sale now, flights depart on Fridays in July, August and September 2017 with holidays from Liverpool available with a low deposit of £49 per person, early booking discounts, free child places and a 20kg luggage allowance. Bulgaria is a beautiful country, rich in culture and traditions with outstanding Black Sea resorts and holidays to Bulgaria have become more and more popular in the past few years, especially with British tourists. Prices in Bulgaria are lower than many other Summer sun spots, meaning great value for money holidays. Some of the most popular resorts including Sunny Beach, Duni and Nessebar are all available from Liverpool in Summer 2017. Mark Povall, Air Service Development Director at LJLA commented:- "Balkan Holidays last operated from Liverpool ten years ago and holidays to the Black Sea resorts have since grown in popularity. We expect flights to Bourgas to prove popular with the regions' holidaymakers who now have access to great value for money holidays in Bulgaria, with the added convenience of flying from Liverpool."
