The Government is seeking views on its newly published consultation focusing on children and young people’s mental health.
‘Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision: a Green Paper’ is open for consultation until 2 March 2018.
Some of the proposed changes include:
• introducing ‘designated mental health leads’ in schools and colleges
• setting up mental health support teams working with schools to give young people earlier access to services
• piloting a four week waiting time for NHS Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services.
Please take a look at the paper and provide your views on the proposals.
