The PAEDS Diagnosis project has now developed resources aimed at helping parents, young people and health professionals understand and adapt to cases of diagnostic shifts in youth mental health settings. The resources have been developed based on the information we gathered through a large study of 12,500 CAMHS clinical records, and a series of interviews with young people and parents throughout Ireland, who had first-hand experience of diagnostic changes. We are very grateful to our participants for sharing their experiences with us.
The resources are freely available for download and dissemination. They can be accessed here. We hope people will find them useful.
