Mental Health Pilots to commence

Department for Education minister Lord Agnew has confirmed that the delayed trials of mental health assessments for children entering the care system will start later this year once the pilot areas have been selected.

Proposals for the pilot have been developed with advice and support from a working group, which includes looked-after children, carers and representatives from a number of care and health organisations, including the Fostering Network, the Care Leavers' Association and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.
