Young people, their parents and guardians and clinicians have developed 'Power Up'.

Power Up is a tool to help people make shared decisions in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).

We now want to investigate how Power Up works in clinical settings and look at what clinical, service and patient outcomes may change. The current study is a feasibility study, which will help prepare the way for an even larger trial to be conducted in the future.

This study has now closed to recruitment. 


Findings so far: 

It was found that involving service users led in the identification and implementation of multiple changes to the POWER UP app, though some issues though there were some challenges associated with using public and patient involvement in this research.
