Improving transition experiences for young people from Children’s and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) to Adult Mental Health Services (AMHS) has been the focus of a number of health care professionals across Europe, yet transition is still a relatively little researched process  and problems persist. Therefore, there are no generally accepted scientific standards regarding the process of transition.

The MILESTONE project will collect evidence systematically and determine care gaps in current mental health services across healthcare systems in Europe. It will robustly evaluate an innovative transitional care intervention and develop a sustainable and standardised best-practice-model, with guidelines on transition.

The MILESTONE project will result in strong evidence for the most cost-effective way to meet the asyetunmet need of young people who fall through the CAMHS-AMHS divide and ensure take-up of best practice.
