star this property answer text <p>​The Department for Education is working closely with NHS England and the Department of Health and Social Care to support schools and colleges to provide support for children and young people with emerging mental health issues and secure specialist treatment where it is needed.</p><p> </p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan published in January 2019 announced that by 2023/24 an extra 345,000 children and young people in England aged 0-25 will receive mental health support via NHS funded mental health services and new Mental Health Support Teams. Mental health services will continue to receive a growing share of the NHS budget, with funding to grow by at least £2.3 billion a year by 2023/24. Spending on children and young people’s mental health services will grow faster than adult services, and faster than other NHS spending. As set out in the 'Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision' green paper, the new support teams will work with groups of schools and colleges to provide swift access to support for children and young people with emerging and mild and moderate needs and support referrals to more specialist treatment.</p><p>The Department for Education is providing up to £95 million between 2019/20 and 2023/24 to support the delivery of the green paper proposals, including the costs of a significant training programme for senior mental health leads, to help schools and colleges to put in place whole school approaches to supporting pupil mental health.​</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department is taking a number of steps to support parents in the care of their children’s mental health and wellbeing.</p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>‘</em>Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision: a Green Paper’, published by the Department of Health and Social Care and the Department for Education in December 2017 aims to ensure joined up working between school and healthcare settings through its proposals, now being implemented, to create new Mental Health Support Teams in and around schools, and incentivise schools and colleges to identify and train a Senior Mental Health Lead. Mental Health Support Teams, the first cohort of which started training in January 2019, will work closely with parents and carers to support children with their mental health. This will include working directly with parents on evidence-based interventions, such as parent-led cognitive behavioural therapy for anxiety or assisting with parent training for conduct problems, as well as supporting parents where interventions are delivered directly to children and young people.</p><p>For very young children, Public Health England's Start4Life information service for parents is a programme that helps parents adopt healthy behaviours, including providing advice and practical guidance on promoting the mental health of babies and pre-school age children. Further information is available at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://campaignresources.phe.gov.uk/resources/campaigns/2-start4life/overview" target="_blank">https://campaignresources.phe.gov.uk/resources/campaigns/2-start4life/overview</a></p><p> </p><p>Also, the five universal health visitor reviews for all children under five promote positive parent-infant relationships, attachment and language development which are recognised as key factors influencing child mental wellbeing.

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education has a joint programme of work with the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England, and Health Education England to deliver the proposals set out in the green paper ‘Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision’. It covers action to incentivise all schools and colleges to identify and train senior mental health leads, to introduce and fund new Mental Health Support Teams linked to schools and colleges, and to pilot a four week waiting time for access to specialist NHS children and young people’s mental health services.</p><p>Mental Health Support Teams will be established in 20-25% of England by 2023. The teams will be made up of additional trained mental health workers, supervised by suitable NHS staff and will work closely with other professionals such as educational psychologists, school nurses, counsellors and social workers. The impact of the new teams will be evaluated, including the effect they have on wider provision. The new teams will make up part of the wider increase in NHS children and young people’s mental health services and workforce set out in the NHS Ten-Year Plan. The joint delivery programme is linked to the management of the Ten-Year plan to ensure that the increase in workforce is delivered in a coherent way.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to improving the mental health and wellbeing of all children and young people. Mainstream and special schools have a vital role to play in helping to promote good mental health for all their pupils as well as providing early support where mental health problems have been identified.</p><p> </p><p>To support them to do this, we have funded the PSHE Association to publish age-appropriate guidance to improve teaching about mental health within PSHE. This will be followed by a set of lesson plans spanning key stages 1-4 which will be available for schools to use by September 2015. More information can be found online here: <a href="https://www.pshe-association.org.uk/news_detail.aspx?ID=1435" target="_blank">https://www.pshe-association.org.uk/news_detail.aspx?ID=1435</a></p><p> </p><p>We recognise that prevalence of mental health problems is greater among deaf children. For children, the impact of deafness on their social &amp; psychological development as well as their communication, literacy and educational achievement can be dramatic. Good mental health is one of the four positive outcomes for all children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) that are at the heart of the recent SEND reforms. These reforms created a holistic and responsive approach to meeting the education, health and care needs of disabled children and young people, including those with hearing impairments.</p><p> </p><p>For those with more complex needs, including pupils in special schools, statements are being replaced by Education, Health and Care Plans. These are intended to cover the full range of the child or young person’s needs, including consideration of their mental health and wellbeing. This is to recognise the interaction between the issues they face and the need for joined up support. Children and young people should be involved in developing their EHC plan to ensure that their ambitions and the things that are important to them are reflected. The statutory guidance is available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25</a></p><p> </p><p>Where mental health needs are identified it is important that suitable effective provision can be made. The Department of Health has begun identifying and taking forward actions on how we can provide therapeutic support to deaf people. In the meantime, Clinical Commissioning Groups are expected to recognise the importance of commissioning mental health services that are accessible to British Sign Language users and deaf people more generally.</p><p> </p>
