“This technology helps children and young people see how their treatment is progressing”

The government will be investing around GBP 2 million to roll out tablet computers across 42 sites in England which will be used by children with mental health problems to track their progress during therapy sessions, following research that this can improve recovery rates.

According to support minister Norman Lamb: “This technology helps children and young people see how their treatment is progressing.  Where treatment is not going as well as it could, practitioners can then change their approach to get the best results.”

The devices will have the added advantage of being used by therapists to record sessions so that supervisors can view them later and offer feedback as well as cutting down time spent on administration and recording outcomes.
