THRIVE - The AFC-Tavistock Model for CAMHS

THRIVE is a new model for how children's mental health services are conceived, commissioned and run, which has been developed by the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and the Tavistock and Portman.

The model is organised around the needs and strengths of children and their parents and is clearer about the limitations of what CAMHS can and can't offer. 

In November 2015, THRIVE Elaborated was published, which expands the THRIVE framework for CAMHS, particularly in how it aligns to implementation models and payment systems.
