    [post_content] => Homeopaths have an opportunity to feed into national thinking on young people and mental health in England and Wales in a government consultation.

The green paper, published by the Department of Health and Social Care and Department for Education, focuses on earlier intervention and prevention, especially in schools and colleges.

The proposals include:
  • creating a new mental health workforce of community-based mental health support teams
  • every school and college will be encouraged to appoint a designated lead for mental health
  • a new four-week waiting time for NHS children and young people’s mental health services to be piloted in some areas
The Society of Homeopaths, which is running a campaign on mental health and homeopathy in the coming year, will be making a response and is urging its members to give their views direct to the consultation. "We know the remarkable positive impact homeopathy can have on those suffering from mental health issues and the contribution we can make to the increasing problems affecting young people," said Sue Crump, Chair of the Society's Public Affairs Committee.
