Rosena Allin-Khan – 2020 Comments on Mental Health of Children

The comments on Rosena Allin-Khan, the Shadow Mental Health Minister, on 22 October 2020.

Covid-19 is clearly having a negative impact on the wellbeing of children and young people, with the impact being felt even more by those with an existing mental health problem.

The relationship between financial security and probable mental illness is undeniable in this report. This inequality is well documented, but successive Conservative governments have failed to address it, leaving less well-off children to fall through the cracks.

If the Government continues to fail our children, the consequences will be felt for a generation.
