About the programme
The programme brings together schools and colleges and Children and Young People's Mental Health Services (CYPMHS) to embed long term collaboration and integrated working.
This ground-breaking initiative helps CCGs and Local Authorities work together with schools and colleges to provide timely mental health support to children and young people. It empowers staff by brokering contact, sharing expertise and developing a joint vision for CYP mental health and well-being in each locality.
- Develop a shared view of strengths and limitations and capabilities and capacities of education and mental health professionals

- Ensure more effective use of existing resources
- Improved joint working between education and mental health professionals
