To rectify the current deficiencies in funding children’s mental health and other emotional and behaviour issues of primary school pupils the All Party Parliamentary Group for a Fit and Healthy Childhood has published the Child Mental Health Charter which builds upon the themes of the APPG’s 12th report ‘Children’s Mental Health Beyond the Green Paper: The Role of Practice-Based Evidence.’
On 8 April, Steve McCabe MP, chair of the All Party Group on a Fit and Healthy Childhood, tabled a Motion (EDM 2285) at Westminster for new mental health legislation for children, which asks the Prime Minister to honour her pledge to include a new Mental Health Bill in the 2019 Queen’s Speech.

The Charter is a blueprint for the Bill. It already has the support of 30 MPs but just as important is your support. If successful there will be more funding for primary schools to support training and therapy.
