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>
