Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:

What steps he is taking to increase the provision of mental health services for children and young people.

Answered by Jackie Doyle-Price

We are making an additional £1.4 billion available in order to transform services and ensure access to specialist mental health services for 70,000 additional children and young people by 2020/21 each year. Our recent joint health and education Green Paper will revolutionise provision of services in schools, bolster links between schools and the National Health Service and pilot a four week waiting time.
