In response to NHSE’s invitation for views on the priorities for mental health in the NHS Ten Year Plan, the Coalition has submitted its views on what needs to happen for infants, children and young people. Through recent consultation with our members, we have identified three areas that we believe are key priorities – prevention; more investment in early intervention and a wider and more diverse workforce.
The following response is informed by a recent survey and a strategic planning day with our members. This has allowed us to consider, amongst other things, future priorities for infants, children’s and young people’s mental health. Through our consultation with members and through other activities, we bring considerable experience from both frontline providers, professional bodies, as well those engaged in training, policy and research to addressing the questions set out in their offer.
