Mental health and wellbeing is “a top priority” for the Departments of Health and Education, according to the government’s official response to a British Youth Council report.

‘The Official Response to the British Youth Council’s Youth Select Committee Report – ‘Young People’s Mental Health’’, published jointly by the Departments for Education and Health, goes on to state that mental health has been “undervalued, underfunded and under prioritised for far too long.”
