Thousands of children and young people will receive earlier, easy access mental health interventions at 24 hubs in local communities.  The drop-in centres offer mental health support and advice to young people without a referral by a doctor or school. Services provided include group work, counselling, psychological therapies, specialist advice and signposting to information and other services.  The £8 million overall package aims to improve access for children and young people to vital mental health support before their condition escalates further, which will also reduce pressure on NHS services. The hubs are open to those aged 11 to 25, and are available for anyone who may not meet the threshold to receive NHS support
