Young Peoples Mental Health Green Paper – Government Response

July 30, 2018

The Department of Health and Social Care has published the government’s response to the consultation which we contributed to.

They received over 2,700 responses to the consultation. This has helped them to develop the approach to how the department will transform children and young people’s mental health provision.

The department will be sharing about the full response on social media using #youngmentalhealth.

Those aged 16-25 years were concerned that:

  • those out of education should still be able to access mental health support;
  • design of services should be based around the specific and distinct needs of young people;
  • mental health education should be incorporated into the curriculum; and the effectiveness and outcomes of interventions and counselling services should be measured.

You can see the full response from the department on their website and you can read the NNPCF contribution on our consultations page.
