Mental health boost needs early help follow up
Mental health boost needs early help follow up.
In response to the Chancellor’s announcement of more funding for mental health help for children, young people and new mothers, Kate Mulley, director of policy and campaigns at Action for Children, said: “The amount of children and young people suffering from serious mental health problems is a national crisis.
“This new funding will help to ease that crisis, but whoever forms the next government needs to commit to a shift towards early help so that children do not end up in such dire need.
“Action for Children knows from our work that investing more in supporting the emotional wellbeing of children and new mothers can make a difference that lasts a lifetime.”
