This work stream has been reviewed and revised, and was previously called 'Resilience and Early Intervention'.

The work stream aims to deliver proposals for best practice and service development to deliver targeted support and interventions to those most at risk of developing emotional and mental health problems or showing early signs of mental disorders. There will be specific focus on children who are in or on the edge of care or the looked after children system, and those outside of mainstream education, particularly those children not in education, employment or training (NEET). 

It will also feed into the Ministerial Advisory Group on Outcomes for Children and the Whole School Approach programme.
