star this property answer text <p>We acknowledge that prevention is key to transforming children and young people’s mental health and are taking a number of actions to prevent problems occurring. This includes investment of £3 million to develop the MindEd e-portal, which provides free training on children and young people’s mental health to all professionals who work with children, and over the course of 2016/17-2020/21, providing just over £12 million to fund Time to Change. Time To Change aims to raise awareness of mental health illness and address the fear of stigma that can stop young people and their families from seeking the help that they need. We are also delivering mental health awareness training in every school in England, and given that maternal mental health has a significant impact on the child’s mental health, we are investing £365 million up until 2020/21 to improve access to specialist perinatal mental health services.</p><p> </p><p>In order to transform children and young people’s mental health services, we are making an additional £1.4 billion available from 2015/16 to 2019/20, to ensure access to specialist mental health services for 70,000 additional children and young people each year by 2020/21. This additional money provides funding for clinical commissioning groups and various national programmes, including improving crisis support, expanding the workforce and tackling stigma. Our recent Green Paper, which is supported by over £300 million of additional funding, aims to improve provision of support in schools, bolster links between schools and National Health Service specialist services and improve access through piloting a four week waiting time.</p>

The National Health Service app library is now hosting six digital tools aimed at improving mental health support and early intervention for children and young people.</p><p> </p><p>There is also ongoing work to redesign the NHS.uk website to improve information and access to digital support for mental health.

star this property answer text <p>The Government set parity of esteem in physical and mental health in law in the Health and Social Care Act 2012. The Government further reinforced this commitment by welcoming the independent Mental Health Taskforce’s Five Year Forward View for Mental Health report in February 2016. The report set out a strategy for change in four key areas to drive forward improvements in mental health: promoting good mental health and helping people lead the lives they want to live, integrating care, creating a seven-day National Health Service for mental health and hard wiring mental health across health and social care.</p><p>The Government accepted all the report’s recommendations in January 2017 and published a detailed action plan for taking forward the recommendations, including how we will monitor progress and report transparently. NHS England’s Implementation plan for the Five Year Forward View, published in July 2016, also set out a robust plan for delivering the commitments set out in the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health.</p><p>The Government has also set up the first waiting times standards for mental health, including for those experiencing a first episode of psychosis. Latest figures show that over 75% of people experiencing their first episode of psychosis commence treatment within two weeks, exceeding the 50% Early Intervention in Psychosis target set for 2016/17.</p><p>NHS England’s Mental Health Investment Standard also requires the local NHS to increase mental health investment by at least the same proportion as overall allocations. This is planned to be met across England as a whole in 2017/18 and 2018/19. For 2018/19 all clinical commissioning groups will be required to meet the Mental Health Investment Standard and this will be subject to confirmation by their auditors.</p>
