Open Forum Event - 'Children and Young People´s Mental Health: Improving Care, Treatment and Support'



Tuesday 12th of December 2017


Earlier this year the Government announced its intention to publish a Green Paper on children and young people’s mental health. The paper will set out plans to transform services in schools, universities and for families with extra mental health staff training. By 2021 the aim is put an end to the practice of children being sent away from their local areas to receive care, treatment and support.

Half of all mental health problems have been established by the age of 14, rising to 75 per cent by age 24. One in ten children aged 5 – 16 has a diagnosable problem. The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health makes clear that by 2020/21 there will be a significant shift towards prevention and transformation of care. Key actions from NHS England include ensuring that people have greater access to care; services are designed in partnership; inequalities are reduced; care is integrated across physical, mental and social needs; and prevention strategies are prioritised for key moments in life.

Work is already in happening to secure input on what robust standards for children and young people, including crisis and perinatal care, should look like. There is a growing consensus that strong partnerships between the education sector and mental health services can help improve the provision of care for children’s mental health and well-being. With significant variation in the quality of the links between schools and colleges and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services and in the level of financial support, the Government is committing sufficient resource and building on the CAMHS link pilots to ensure that effective services can be established in all parts of the country.
