Consultation on children and young people’s mental health provision

Children in England will be able to access mental health support at school or college under Government proposals to transform services for young people. The Government [on 4 December] set out ambitious plans in a green paper "Transforming Children and Young People's Memtal Health Provision" to increase mental health support and provide earlier access to services, and over £300 million funding to take the proposals forward.  
                                                                             

  • New measures signal a fundamental shift in mental health support, with over £300 million funding available
  • Training for senior designated mental health leads in schools to improve prevention work
  • Earlier access to services through the creation of new Mental Health Support Teams working in and directly with schools
  • New four week waiting time for NHS children and young people’s mental health services to be piloted
