Policy framework

Several measures mentioned in section 7.5 are worth mentioning as mechanisms for the early detection and signposting of young people facing health risks.

In the 2019–2022 rate adjustment pool agreement, three projects develop and/or strengthen early preventive measure in the municipalities targeting mentally vulnerable young people. The projects are funded with a total of 238.6 million DKK. See section 7.5.

In the 2018–2021 agreement, 214.6 million DKK is allocated to establishing an extended regional psychiatric unit for the treatment of young people outside the psychiatric system. The objective of the extended unit is to treat children and young people in the least intrusive way, as close to their family, school, and everyday life as possible. The target group is young people with psychiatric illness who do not need a measure in the children and youth psychiatric system but need a measure in their local environment. See section 7.5. The project is in effect and there is no other information available.

In the 2018–2021 agreement, 15 million DKK has been allocated to a pilot project where young people in the 18–20-year age group with light depression and/or light anxiety are entitled to free psychologist treatment. In the 2019–2022 agreement, 21-year-olds were included in the existing pilot project. The project is in effect and there is no other information available.
