Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition

The ACP is a member of the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition whose vision is for all infants, children and young people to grow up in a society that prioritises their mental health and wellbeing.

The Coalition brings together leading charities to campaign jointly on the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people.

About Us

We are a coalition of leading organisations from across England, with a growing base of supporters who are passionate about the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. Through the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition, our charities come together and speak as one on behalf of children and young people’s mental health.

Our Vision

Our vision is for all infants, children and young people to grow up in a society that prioritises, invests in, listens and attends to their mental health and wellbeing. We are working towards building a nation where positive mental health is promoted and early intervention practices are in place to secure mentally healthier futures for our children and young people.

Our Way

We see mental health as everyone’s business. When one of us is in distress, there are implications for everyone: lost potential, unemployment and crime are just some of the consequences.

We want the Government to hear what we have to say and to put our ideas into practice. We would like ministers, commissioners and everyone who makes decisions relating to children and young people to note that promoting positive mental health, preventing mental ill health, and intervening early when problems arise requires cross-government action.
