Abstract: CAMHS' vision is that the rights, options and opportunities if people with mental disorders shall be the same as those of other members of the community. The service delivery model is based on the principles of the social integration. CAMHS recognises that consumers do not have homogenous interests, strengths or needs. Therefore, CAMHS is committed to improving consumer access to a comprehensive range of formal and informal services and supports to facilitate social integration. The Service is also committed to developing partnerships with consumers, carers and support networks for both clinical work and service planning, delivery and evaluation.
