A "long overdue" government pledge to boost mental health support for young people has been cautiously welcomed by charities who say it must go further.
The NHS Long Term Plan, published by NHS England, promises to help 345,000 more young people through community-based services including schools and colleges.
Crisis care, early intervention, and a "continuous care" approach that provides mental health support through to age 25 are also key areas set to benefit from the plan, which recognises that "between the ages of 5-15, one in every nine children has a mental disorder".
The long-awaited news comes amid ongoing sector demands for a "parity of esteem" - for mental health to be given the same status as physical wellbeing. Currently just a fraction of the NHS budget goes to child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS).
