The THRIVE Framework for system change (Wolpert et al, 2019) is an integrated, person centred and needs led approach to delivering mental health services for children, young people and families which conceptualises need in five categories: Thriving, Getting Advice and Signposting, Getting Help, Getting More Help and Getting Risk Support.
This means that children, young people and families alongside professionals through shared decision-making define mental health needs.
THRIVE framework is for:
- All children and young people aged 0-25 within a specified locality
- All families and carers of children and young people aged 0-25 within a specified locality
- Any professionals who seek to promote mental health awareness and help children and young people with mental health and wellbeing needs or those at risk of mental health difficulties (whether staff in educational settings, social care, voluntary or health sectors or others)
- Thriving - those whose current need is support to maintain mental wellbeing through effective prevention and promotion strategies.
- Getting Advice - those who need advice and signposting
- Getting Help - those who need focussed goals-based input
- Getting More Help - those who need more extensive and specialised goals-based help
- Getting Risk Support - those who have not benefited from or are unable to use help, but are of such a risk that they are still in contact with services
