Have Your Say: Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision

Consultation on the Government green paper will close at noon on Friday 2 March 2018.

The consultation on this green paper on children and young people’s mental health sets out this Government’s ambition to ensure that those who need it are able to access the right help for their mental health, in the right place and at the right time.

The green paper focuses on earlier intervention and prevention particularly in or linked to schools and colleges.

A green paper is a document where the Government states what it wants to do, so that people can tell the Government what they think.

There is a quick read version of the children and young people’s mental health green paper to explain what changes the Government want to make. The changes will affect:

  • pupils, students and staff at schools and colleges
  • specialist mental health services
  • families and communities

More in-depth information can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/transforming-children-and-young-peoples-mental-health-provision-a-green-paper but the actual consultation process is through another website.
