WHY use NATnIMP?
- identify need,
- routinely explore the suicide prevention needs of all young people accessing the service,
- improve services,
- prove success of interventions,
- show how well services meet LGBT young people's needs,
- influence local strategies,
- influence mainstream and specialist service provision,
- help access funding, and
- help gather evidence to influence national strategy.
Interview details: Once the NAT is completed, a report is produced which can be seen on screen and printed off. The report is then used to discuss and agree with your client, what their individual action plan should be. Click here to view an example of an individual report.
Once both the NAT and an IMP have been completed you can print off the report which shows responses to both interviews. You (and the young person) are thus able to see clearly any progress made and identify issues which need further action. Click here to access one example of a NATnIMP report, and here for another one
Consolidated details: When a number of NATs have been completed, ReSURV will provide consolidated details of the number of participants who have answered key questions. This will include, for example, how many have been depressed, attempted suicide, self-harmed, misused alcohol or drugs, have been homeless, etc. This useful data can be fed into local health needs assessments and help with commissioning processes.

Anonymised reports: Utilising information from the consolidated report you can then write a report for submission to local agencies or funders. Here is an example of a report written by Jan Bridget based on anonymised data from GALYIC.
There is plenty of research on the needs of LGBT young people from abroad and with the Youth Chances project we now have research from across England.

Evidence from research and experience of responding to the needs of LGBT young people, encouraged GALYIC to develop a comprehensive and easy-to-use method of assessing the needs of its members.
