§ Mr. Hutton
We are making an additional £84 million available over 3 years from April 1999 to improve provision of appropriate, high quality care and treatment for children and young people by building up locally based child and adolescent mental health services. These services address a range of child and adolescent mental health problems including emotional and behavioural disorders such as attention deficit disorder, phobias and depression.
