In 2015, the Government committed 5 years of extra funding for Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services (CYPMHS). All areas of England were required to submit plans outlining how they will improve their services by 2020. This POSTnote describes some of the new models of CYPMHS and examines the challenges to their effective implementation.

POSTnotes are based on literature reviews and interviews with
a range of stakeholders and are externally peer reviewed.
