We remain committed to the aims of the NHS Long Term Plan to invest at least an additional £2.3 billion a year into mental health services for all ages, including for children and young people aged 0 to 25 years old, by 2023/24. We are introducing new models of care that will give 370,000 people, including young adults with serious mental illness, greater choice and control over their care and that will support them to live well in their communities. These models include access to employment support.
