This report summarises the work of the Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Joint Delivery Board which was co-chaired by COSLA and Scottish Government. The Board oversaw reform across areas that impact on the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people.
The Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Joint Delivery Board (JDB), co-chaired by COSLA and Scottish Government, is the most recent national programme of work seeking to support children and young people’s mental health.
The JDB ran from Spring 2021 to Spring 2023 and focused on eight ‘deliverables’ in areas including community-based, crisis and neurodevelopmental support, CAMHS, support for children and young people in vulnerable situations, 3-5 year olds, education and training and mental health communications. Work undertaken has been underpinned by Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) and is aligned to the Promise.
