Evidence based interventions that work

Clinical practice that has been researched for efficacy and positive outcomes is not only important as we strive towards quality practice, but delivers tangible improvements in outcome for infants, children and young people experiencing mental health and addiction concerns. 

This resource has been designed to help you, as a busy health practitioner, to quickly establish if a particular intervention has a solid research basis, and whether it is likely to work for the child or young person you are working with and their family/whānau. 

Common presentations come with an information sheet summarising key elements, prevalence and the quality of evidence behind numerous interventions, helping you easily become familiar with a range of evidence bases for various approaches within child and adolescent mental health services.
