Alistair Burt talks about plans to improve children and young people’s mental health including a national anti-stigma campaign for teenagers

"Today we’re talking about nothing short of the biggest transformation to young people’s mental health and one of the largest investments the sector has seen. I want to place the emphasis on building young people’s resilience, promoting good mental health and wellbeing and intervening early. We need to build care around the needs of young people and their families. I want to deliver a clear joined-up approach to mental health care, so children and young people can navigate through the system to get the care they need."
