With input from our wonderful Sprouting Minds group (the Digital Youth PPI group) we now have a plan for how to involve more young people in our coproduction work, where we will start to consider the design and materials of the CaTS-App. Please see below for how to get involved.
In parallel, we are now inviting practitioners to share their views on the CaTS-App. This work is also helping us to inform how the CaTS-App might function and feel.
If you are a practitioner who works with young people (aged 11-19) who self-harm, we’d love for you to tell us your thoughts! We have an option for you to get involved in a short, anonymous survey and/or a focus group with other professionals or a 1-2-1 interview.
We’d love to hear from colleagues across sectors, including:
- health and social care, youth work (e.g. CAMHS, GPs, clinicians, A&E staff, social workers)
- educational (e.g. teachers, MHSTs, EMHPs, school nurses, SENCOs)
- third sector professionals (e.g. volunteers and staff)
and others who may have an interest in this area!
If you think you might like to get involved, please complete this online form which will give you the option to complete the survey and/or register interest for the focus groups/interviews: https://nottingham.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/practitioner-cats-survey
