Children and young people's mental health

Inquiry

The Committee is undertaking an inquiry into Children and Young People’s Mental Health. The inquiry will examine the progress that has been made by Government against their own ambitions to improve children and young people’s mental health provision.

We will also consider whether the system should be reformed toward a more holistic approach that prioritises early intervention and prevention as well as crisis care and explore how to tackle worrying trends in self-harm and suicide.
