Have your say on children and young people’s mental health services

The government is asking for views on proposals outlined to improve and provide faster access to children and young people’s mental health services.

As outlined in the government’s green paper, the proposals focus on early intervention and include the development of dedicated school and college based support, new community-based mental health support teams and a reduction in waiting times.

The government would like your views on these ideas, particularly from those who have personal experience of mental health services, or who have supported someone close to them with mental health issues.

How can I find out more?

You can read more about the green paper by reading a summary of the plans and proposals, or by watching a short video which explains more.
