‘15 Days’ – a story about collaborative problem solving in public services
A story about the Youth Mental Health Pathfinder Project - a cross government approach to tackling youth mental health.
This report, written by Rhona Gaynor, Peter Thomas and Andrew Templeman and published by CES in 2017, tells the story of how the Youth Mental Health Pathfinder introduced new ways of working in Ireland’s Department of Health, based on collaborative problem solving. The report also contains practical information about tools and processes which were used to support collaboration and problem solving. While the Pathfinder process focused on youth mental health, the report offers guidance and invaluable resources for any public servant involved in tackling complex problems which require a collaborative approach.
