Emotional wellbeing and mental health for children and young people

We want to make sure that children, young people their families and the professionals working with them:

  • have access to information and advice 
  • are aware of local services that can support them when they are experiencing emotional wellbeing, mental health or behavioural concerns.

We aim to provide them and their families with better access to the right support at the right time.

The Lincolnshire local transformation plan for children and young people’s emotional wellbeing and mental health has been updated.
