A new £35 million research programme will give more support to teenagers battling with mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, self-harm and eating disorders.
Academics will look at some of the causes of mental health issues, as well as how we can better identify vulnerable young people and ensure frontline health services support them earlier to get the help they need.
Public Health England and the NHS have also launched Every Mind Matters, offering vital support to those living with a mental health condition and contributing to tackling the stigma that can still surround mental health.
The Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Brighton Kemptown & Peacehaven - Joe Miller - said:
"I welcome the announcement that more funding is there to better diagnose and treat young people’s mental health problems. The launch today of Every Mind Matters, a programme to help people to take simple steps to look after their mental health, is an excellent initiative."
