The Triangle of Care for Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services A Guide for Mental Health Professionals
Carers Trust has developed the Triangle of Care for Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services (CYP MHS) as a supplementary guide to complement the Triangle of Care (Carers Trust, 2013) and to help mental health professionals in CYP MHS to be better able to identify, understand and support carers.
These resources are designed to support the training of a wide range of professionals and volunteers to identify and support young carers.

The Children and Families Act 2014 places a duty on local authorities to take ‘reasonable steps’ to identify young carers in their area who have support needs. This resource sets out these duties and shows how local government can work with education, health and social care partners to take the steps necessary to increase identification of young carers.
