Dean spent the day last week with kids from local schools around Manchester thanks to Manchester United Foundation talking about resilience.
On average, 3 children in every school class have a diagnosable mental health condition and the number of children and young people arriving at A&E with a psychiatric condition has more than doubled since 2010.
A government pilot announced at the weekend says that an ‘ambition new scheme’ helps to get every child seen within 4 week. Mr Hunt said: "Every school will have a senior mental health lead, who will be trained to understand what someone's mental health condition might be and the help they might need.
The Government is promising an extra £300m over the next three years to fund the proposals.
Working closely with our #headstogether partners Place2Be, The Mix, Young Minds, Best Beginnings, Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families the #pah18 team hope the money we are raising will help to support children from the very beginning and hope one day every child will have access to the help they need. More training, more funding and more understanding is key to this and we applaud the magnificent work these guys have done getting #childrensmentalhealth to the forefront of peoples discussions in 2017.
