The Link Programme

One in eight children experience a mental health problem. Half of all lifetime cases of mental health disorders begin by the age of 14. It has never been more important to promote mental health. The Link Programme is led by the Centre, funded by the Department for Education and supported by NHS England. Over the next four years it will be rolled out to all schools and colleges in England. Coordinated by local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) it will bring together education and mental health services so that children and young people can get the help they need, when they need it.

  • Link Programme officially launched today by Secretary of State Damian Hinds
