This paper provides an overview of the national child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS) mapping exercise, the workforce data reported in the mapping between 2003 and 2006, and how this data relates to current policy. The paper will first outline key issues within current CAMHS workforce policy and provide an introduction to the mapping process itself in order to establish the context in which the findings from the mapping exercises are being presented. The mapping is carried out by Durham University on behalf of the Department of Health. Core trend data is provided on the growth and development of the specialist CAMHS.
