Sussex Health and Care Partnership: Operation Warren - Responding to Children and Young People’s Mental Health

West Sussex has seen an increase in completed suicides in young people, which required a multi-agency coordinated response. Operation Warren was established with the project vision to ensure a seamless multi-agency response to prevent further child deaths. The team brings together professionals from health, social care and charitable organisations to respond to concerns which could point to potential suicide or self-harm. Operation Warren has two distinct functions: first, identification and planning by a triage team, and second, support and intervention delivered to educational establishments by a dedicated school’s team.

The judges said the service response was proactive and adopted an integrated approach that is saving lives.
