There is a discrepancy between the demand for mental health treatment amongst children, young people and their carers, and the capacity of the current service system to provide evidence based interventions. Innovative models of care are required to redress this discrepancy. One such model is the single session model, which provides a single or small number of solution focused sessions targeting one or two identified problems. Single session interventions have been trialled across a range of presenting concerns including child and youth mental health services. This paper provides a rationale for offering a brief focused intervention as part of a broader Child and Youth Mental Health Service, and introduces a model of how brief intervention fits within a broader system of care.
