Consultation on the Government green paper will close at noon on Friday 2 March 2018.
The consultation on this green paper on children and young people’s mental health sets out this Government’s ambition to ensure that those who need it are able to access the right help for their mental health, in the right place and at the right time.
The green paper focuses on earlier intervention and prevention particularly in or linked to schools and colleges.
A green paper is a document where the Government states what it wants to do, so that people can tell the Government what they think.
There is a quick read version of the children and young people’s mental health green paper to explain what changes the Government want to make. The changes will affect:
- pupils, students and staff at schools and colleges
- specialist mental health services
- families and communities
More in-depth information can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/transforming-children-and-young-peoples-mental-health-provision-a-green-paper but the actual consultation process is through another website.
Thursday 20 July 10:00 – 13:30 at the VAC offices, Hall Street, Halifax.
This half day session will look at managing your mental health in your organisation: identifying problems and finding coping mechanisms that could help. We’ll hear from a Healthy Minds volunteer with personal experience of managing a mental health condition at work, and explore a range of strategies with a view to identifying which might suit us best as individuals.
We will also look at mental health in the wider workplace: how might we realise that someone we work with is struggling with their mental health, and how might we respond and support them, including looking at local services.
– Learners become more confident in identifying mental health issues
– Learners are better informed and have more confidence in how to respond
This session is for voluntary community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations who would like to find out more about managing mental health in their organisation.
