A £1.5 million fund driven by young people to help them develop support networks and talk about mental health, has been announced by the Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan.

The scheme includes online advice and workshops to help set up support networks. A digital innovation fund will be used to provide new and engaging online resources for parents and young people such as mobile phone apps.

To help extend work across the country a new advisory group will gather evidence from young people about their experiences and work with schools that are running successful peer to peer support.

The group will be supported by experts from charities, including Young Minds; head teachers, and young people themselves.

Young people want to be involved and to share their views, and often turn to social media to do this. So today, Education Secretary Nicky Morgan is urging young people to get involved and tell the government what help they would need to set up peer support networks.
