Consultations with young people on the green paper Transforming children and young people’s mental health provision

The green paper Transforming children and young people's mental health provision was published on the 4th December 2017. The cross-departmental document is a collaboration between the Department for Education (DfE) and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).

The document sets out measures to improve mental health support for children and young people. It focuses on earlier intervention and prevention, especially in and linked to schools and colleges.

Youth Access, acting on behalf of The Young People’s Health Partnership, was commissioned by DHSC to run several focus groups with young people to get their thoughts on the proposals outlined in the green paper. This report summarises their responses.
