Have your say on children and young people’s mental health
Improving support for children and young people’s mental health is a top priority for this government. This green paper on children and young people’s mental health aims 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. It focuses on earlier intervention and prevention, particularly in or linked to schools and colleges.
We welcome all responses to the consultation including from those who have experience of mental ill-health or know someone close to them who has such experience. The consultation focuses on how the proposals in the green paper will be implemented.
This consultation has 21 questions. However, you do not have to answer all of them. Only answer those questions you want to or those which are relevant to you.
You can save your responses and return to complete the survey at any time. The survey will be open for 13 weeks, in alignment with Cabinet Office guidance, and will close at noon on 2 March 2018.
