This document published by the Department of Health makes a number of proposals to improve mental health services for young people by 2020.
- tackling stigma and improving attitudes to mental illness
- introducing more access and waiting time standards for services
- establishing ‘one stop shop’ support services in the community, and
- improving access for children and young people who are particularly vulnerable.
The report sets out how much of this can be achieved through better partnership working between the NHS, local authorities, voluntary and community services, schools and other local services.
