According to local leaders, one in six kids in Barnsley are struggling.

In Parliament, Dan spoke out and called for ‘vital’ support to be provided.

He said: “It’s deeply concerning that one in six kids in Barnsley are struggling with their mental health.

“It’s vital that the government steps up support, including by increasing specialist mental health provision in schools - so every child in Barnsley can access the help they need.”
