We have asked children and young people’s mental health services to increase contact with vulnerable groups, including looked-after children and care leavers and to work together to better meet the needs of 0-25-year olds, including those with mental health problems not currently supported by existing services.

The NHS Long Term Plan commits to the development of a comprehensive mental health offer for children, young people and young adults, including care leavers. We are working to ensure that by 2023/24 an extra 345,000 children and young people will be able to access support via National Health Service-funded mental health services and school or college based mental health support teams.
