We are investing an extra £1.4billion in children and young people’s mental health services. This money is already extending access for children and young people to vital services, and will reach an extra 70,000 children a year by 2020/21.

The Government has committed to publish a Green Paper on children and young people’s mental health by the end of the year to outline next steps.
