This guideline aims to clarify the intent and necessary components for Partnership as implemented under CAPA.
It describes the principles of Partnership and provides a framework to support the core skills and knowledge required to undertake Partnership.
The guideline has been developed to support new clinicians, clinicians who are new to CAPA and Partnership, and teams looking to have a consistent CAPA approach to care.

This guideline aims to enhance the understanding of the letting go process within the CAPA framework. The CAPA activity of letting go refers to the case closing and ending of an episode of care, where the young person and their family/whānau transitions out of the service.
The ability to let go is important in helping children and young people and their family/whānau to regain control of their lives; and assists teams to achieve a smooth flow through their services.
The guideline has been developed to support new clinicians, clinicians who are new to CAPA, and teams looking to have a consistent CAPA approach to care.

Transition Planning Guidelines
This guideline is to assist with developing and implementing planning processes for young people who are transitioning from your services.
It has been developed to promote consistent practice across ICAMH/AOD services nationally and to guide services to support young people to transition between services and in-and-out of services based upon their level of need at that time.
Transition planning template examples are also available to download
Care bundles are more than a care pathway or package; care bundles are a systematic way of measuring and improving care processes by grouping together interventions that are more effective if given together than alone. The aim is to ensure everyone receives the best care, based on evidence and local clinical opinion, 100% of the time. A care bundle is a structured way of improving processes of care to deliver enhanced clinical outcomes; this means ensuring infants, children, young people and their family/whānau receive optimum care at every contact.
Thank you to Bay of Plenty DHB for sharing some of their Care Bundles.
These care bundles should be used as examples only as the Care bundle working group are systematically upgrading/revising and reformatting these to an editable template that will then be made accessible as a national resource through our website. Please check back for updates.

The Drive series of video resources are designed to help young people and their families navigate their way through child and adolescent mental health services. These can be used with the young person and their family/ whānau following Choice and within Partnership. The videos show examples of different kinds of therapies and clinicians who work in these services. They also include information about medications that are sometimes used to treat anxiety, depression and psychosis. Each video is around 5 minutes duration.
