Mental Health Taskforce Report

It is good that children and young people's mental health is a priority for government. However, we need to keep a watching brief and raise concerns with ministers to ensure that children and young people's mental health remains a priority, and the money pledged is invested in children and young people's mental health and not used to plug gaps.
With our partners Mind, we gathered evidence from over 20,000 people into the Taskforce and once again, what we heard loud and clear was a need for services that would provide the same quality care and support that would be there for a physical health issue. This is now the chance to make a reality of that hope.
