Improving mental health care for children and young people

NHS England has issued guidance to CCGs on submitting their Local Transformation Plans (LTPs) to improve mental health care for children and young people, including how they will develop eating disorder services.

This year NHS England will spend an extra £133m on improving children and young people’s mental health, in addition to current local CAMHS budgets and the £30m for ED. A further £9m will be spent by Health Education England.

£75m will go to CCGs to improve local services. They will work up their plans with local authorities schools and children, young people and their families, for review and funding in the Autumn.
