Children and young people’s mental health
NHS England has published a ten year plan to improve the quality of patient care and health outcomes. Measures outlined in the plan include: investing in and expanding access to community-based mental health services to meet the needs of more children and young people; expanding the provision of timely, age-appropriate mental health crisis services for children and young people; embedding mental health support in schools and colleges and developing a new approach to young adult mental health services for people aged 18-25 to support the transition to adulthood.
