Working in collaboration

We maximise our impact on policy and practice by working in collaboration with others who are committed to improving the mental health and wellbeing of children, young people and families.

The Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition

The Children and young People’s Mental Health Coalition (CYPMHC) brings together leading organisations to speak with a collective voice on behalf of children and young people’s mental health. As a steering group member of CYPMHC, the Anna Freud National Centre plays a role in setting the coalition’s priorities.

More information on the coalition’s work and current priorities can be found on its website.

The Anna Freud National Centre is a supporter of the Partnership for Wellbeing and Mental Health in Schools, hosted by the National Children’s Bureau (NBC). The Partnership’s vision is an education system with good mental health and wellbeing at its centre. Its activities include responding to government consultations, producing guidance for schools and reviewing policy and practice developments surrounding mental health and wellbeing.
