[Editorial] Half measures on children’s mental health

In December, 2017, the UK Department of Health and Social Care and the Department for Education released Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision, a green paper proposing changes to the way that mental health services are provided to children. The proposal calls for an additional 8000 staff in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), which account for 0·7% of the National Health Service’s (NHS’s) £125 billion budget, to create new Mental Health Support Teams in schools.
