We responded to the green paper consultation on children and young people's mental health. 

We outlined our history of funding in a wide range of projects supporting improvements in children and young people from across the UK and outlined our belief that good mental health among young people is essential for a flourishing society. 

We answered a number of the questions contained within the consultation with our evidence and learning from these projects and emphasised that ensuring closer cross agency working and taking a more holistic approach to mental health care and support is vital.
