Children and young people's mental health care and support

The Royal Colleges of GPs (RCGP), Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), and Psychiatrists (RCPsych) have committed to five shared principles to improve the care and support of children and young people with mental health problems across the UK. The principles include: a shared vision for children and young people’s mental health across all government departments; training and education for the whole children’s workforce in their role and responsibilities for children and young people’s mental health.
