Supporting children's mental health

Today the government announced a £79 million boost to mental health services for children and young people - ensuring that mental health support is available for those who need it.

  • This has been an exceptionally difficult year, especially for our children and young people, and we all know it is having a real impact on their mental health.
  • This additional funding will help ensure that nearly three million children in England can access this vital support when and where they need it – by creating hundreds more mental health support teams in schools and colleges. This boost will also mean children who need to, can access services in the community as well as providing this early intervention support in schools.
  • The government is committed to supporting everyone’s mental health and wellbeing, responding to the long-term impact this pandemic has had on people’s mental health and doing everything we can to ensure young people who need help, get help.
