The Review considered the needs of all children and young people from birth to age 19, and their families. It sought to find out how children’s health, education and social care services are contributing to the mental health and psychological well-being of children and young people.

It also considers how services can be improved further to meet the educational, health and social care needs of all children and young people at risk of, or experiencing, mental health problems.

The recommendations in this report will enable a number of important changes to take place over the next three to five years, including the establishment of a National Advisory Council and the Government’s National Support programme should be strengthened to ensure consistency, improvement and sustainability in service delivery.
