This briefing offers a series of recommendations towards the government’s forthcoming Green Paper.
The Children’s Commissioner believes that a new system should be designed around three principles:
- A mental health service that is designed for children and built to meet their needs.
- A service that supports children in the right place at the right time.
- High quality, evidence based services, from the classroom to hospital care.
This research provides detailed analysis of NHS spending and recommendations for change.
