What is CYA (CAMHS Youth Advisors)?

CYA stands for CAMHS Youth Advisors. Established in 2008, it's a network of over 200 young people with different experiences of accessing mental health services in Surrey, who have a say in what goes on in services, and take part in a whole variety of projects.

Our main aim is to get more users involved with the decisions within the service, because a service aimed at young people should be developed by them too.

CYA works to ensure that children and young people who use mental health services have a voice, through being involved in recruitment, staff training, service development and lots more!
