Why we are needed

Today, nearly 4 children in every UK class has a mental health problem.

If children don't get proper support early on, the repercussions can be enormous, with social issues, lower attainment and increased risk of mental illness in adulthood. Early help is a fraction of the cost of the urgent and high level interventions in mental health that might otherwise be needed later on.

Mental health issues can happen to any child, but we know there is an additional risk for children from deprived backgrounds, who are four times more likely to suffer mental health difficulties and have poorer attainment, with correspondingly poor prospects in the future.

Blue Smile has a three year strategy and a flexible Menu of Services that aims to help many more children, teachers, schools and families. Read our Strategy Leaflet to learn how we will build and develop Blue Smile in order to achieve this.
