Pledge to boost mental health support in schools

Pledge to boost mental health support in schools Children and young people in England are to be able to access mental health support at school or college under government plans to improve services.

The proposals include introducing a four-week waiting time for youngsters needing specialist support and new mental health support teams in schools.

It is hoped around one in four schools in England will have this provision in place by 2022.

Campaigners say it was welcome, but overdue and "only a start".

The issue of young people's mental health has long been of concern, with parents, charities and healthcare professionals warning that families are not getting the support they need. BBC News
