Every child will have access to mental health support at school under an £845million-a-year Labour pledge to end years of Tory neglect.

Qualified counsellors will be recruited for all schools so vulnerable youngsters no longer have to wait months for urgent help.

In addition, a network of drop-in hubs will help 300,000 more kids after it was revealed one in eight suffer at least one mental health disorder.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: “Young people are not getting the support they need.

“As a country, we have to start treating mental health as seriously as physical health.

Labour’s child mental healthcare revolution will ensure a healthier, happier generation that will benefit all of society for decades to come.

Its £845million-a-year Healthy Young Minds plan will reverse years of Tory failures that have left vulnerable youngsters waiting months for urgent care.

Early intervention would dramatically help the one in eight children suffering at least one mental disorder.

Mr Corbyn said: “If we don’t help our young people, we’re not only failing them, but storing up problems for the future for a whole generation.” Read more
