Report launch | A healthy state of mind: Improving young people’s mental fitness, 21 June
Whilst the lack of parity between mental and physical health provision has been increasingly scrutinised, mental health services are still failing to adequately provide for children and young people. The tiered structure and high access thresholds for child and adolescent mental health services have made it increasingly difficult for young people to access help at times of crisis. Furthermore, adolescents in or on the edge of care, despite being particularly vulnerable to mental health difficulties, are not receiving adequate support with their mental health.
This report, sponsored by iMPOWER, identifies policy initiatives that Government should implement across education, primary care and children’s services to enable a better provision of mental health services for young people.
We hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be an interesting event.
Norman Lamb, Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Health
