CCG - Trailblazer - Child Mental Health Support

South Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Group has been named one of the 25 trailblazer areas for improving child mental health support. With one in nine young people aged five to 15 suffering from a mental health condition in 2017, and teenagers with a mental disorder being more than two and a half times more likely to have a mental disorder in adulthood, it is important we take action to help those young people at an early stage. As part of the scheme, schools and colleges will work with the NHS to provide expert mental health support to children and young people where it is needed most, and new staff are starting their training this month.
