Standard Sets

Depression & Anxiety for Children & Young People

The ICHOM Standard Set for Children & Young People with Depression & Anxiety, including OCD & PTSD, is the result of hard work by a group of leading psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health experts, measurement experts, and lived experience experts. It represents the outcomes that matter most to children and young people with depression & anxiety. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their service users.
