Mental health transformation and what it means for children and young people with SEND

The government has committed to spending over £1.25bn to transform children’s and adolescents' mental health services (CAMHS) by 2020. This programme will take forward recommendations from the NHS England and Department of Health report Future in Mind (2015) to improve and integrate services and to support children and young people to be more involved in decisions about their care.
