Rosena Allin-Khan comments on the Government’s announcement on children’s mental health funding

Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Mental Health, commenting on the Government’s announcement on children’s mental health funding, said:

“The Government are so desperate for a positive headline that they are now recycling money previously announced. This is not new funding. It’s a rehash of funding announced last year which is too little, too late.

“With Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services referrals doubling and children going back to school in a matter of days, these resources were needed much sooner.

“This is simply a small sticking plaster during a mental health crisis.”
