The select committees recommend that the government should take action to ensure that apprentices also have access to mental health provision as part of the Green Paper's proposals.

The proposals include £95 million for schools to appoint and train designated senior leads for mental health from 2019 and £215 million for new mental health support teams, which will work with the NHS to offer support and treatments in schools, including cognitive behaviour therapy.

It is not enough to roll out the plans to at most a quarter of the country by 2022/23 as planned.

An inquiry into the proposals by the education and health committees raised questions about the amount of training and pay available for new school mental health leads. Half of school leaders appear to have cut back on their mental health support services.

The Children's Commissioner Anne Longfield released a report last October that estimated only 1 in 5 children with a mental health condition received help from CAMHS. Davidon's talk, entitled "What is Mental Health?"

With the theme, "There is no Health without Mental Health", the event means to raise awareness about how mental wellness, recovery and resiliency are essential components of health, organizers said.

"More often we find is (people with mental health or addictions issues) are embarrassed, not willing to discuss and not having the social support necessary to carry them through the hard times".

"The reality is that one in five Americans will experience mental health issues in their lifetime", Solano County Mental Health Services Administrator Emery Cowan, said.

Our government recognizes that supporting people's mental health is just as important as supporting their physical health, at every stage of life. However, it is clear that more funding will be needed if the Government's trial of a four-week waiting time target is to succeed.

"The Green Paper also fails to adequately address the most important issue beyond the school gates, which is the lack of capacity in local NHS services for students with serious mental health problems". The demand for professional mental health services has increased in recent years, but funding has plummeted.

Zielke de Montbrun encouraged residents to use the #getloud hashtag on social media to show their support for mental health.

Javed Khan, chief executive of Barnardo's, warned that the government risks missing a "golden opportunity to radically transform a failing mental health system".

Dr. Sarah Davidon, research director at Mental Health Colorado and faculty member at the University of Colorado School of Medicine speaks at Monday's Mental Health Matters conference at Northern Michigan University, which was organized by the Upper Peninsula Children's Coalition.

"There isn't a single state that actually has what experts say is an appropriate number of providers to support children's mental health", Davidon said.

Davidon noted that the mental health system is now quite different than the physical health system - there has been a growing focus on wellness and prevention for physical health but this is not the case for mental health.

This year's National Child and Youth Mental Health Day is about creating a safe space for children, youth and adults to have courageous conversations about mental health.
