Information is not available in the format requested. NHS England and local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are responsible for commissioning Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. Local authorities also commission some children and young people’s mental health services, as do schools.

The Government is investing an additional £1.4 billion in an ambitious five year programme of system-wide transformation to improve children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing. This comprises £150 million to develop evidence based community eating disorder services for children and young people, and £1.25 billion for improving children and young people’s mental health services and perinatal mental health services.

Most of the additional funding is for local areas to invest in transforming services. Funding was subsequently provided by NHS England to CCGs, including the three Coventry and Warwickshire CCGs, in August 2015. Allocations for 2015-16 are set out in Annex 4 of the Local Transformation Planning Guidance:
