Newspaper headlines: Mental health overhaul, Madeleine theory and Baftas for DiCaprio and Winslet

Government plans to overhaul NHS mental health services in England with a £1bn-a-year spending boost are documented in Monday's papers.

The Guardian says the vow to transform treatment is backed by a pledge to invest more money by 2020-21 and follows a wide-ranging set of recommendations by an independent taskforce that surveyed the long-neglected and "chronically underfunded" area.

Describing the plans as a "care revolution", the Times notes that hundreds of thousands of people with chronic health problems such as diabetes and back pain will be offered therapy for depression and anxiety as part of a pledge to end the "separation of head and body".

Plans to ensure young people with mental health problems are no longer placed hundreds of miles away from their families are the focus of the coverage in Independent.

The Daily Mail highlights the help for women suffering from post-natal depression and teenagers with eating disorders.

A finding in the taskforce's "landmark report" that half of all older people in care homes are depressed is recorded by the Daily Telegraph.

In a leading article, the Daily Mirror says the government has "woken up to the crisis after years of cutting mental health provision".

'Time goes quickly'

The Sun leads on an interview with the mother of Madeleine McCann. Kate McCann says is convinced her missing daughter remains close to the resort in the Algarve where she was abducted in 2007.

Mrs McCann is spearheading a drive to get Britons to register for missing child rescue alerts. Her daughter's 13th birthday is in May and she told the Sun: "Nine years. Time just goes too quickly. It's the quiet times that are tough. Times when you are thinking about her - or something related to her."

Faulty tumble dryers continue to be a concern to the Daily Mirror. It has carried out an investigation which suggests 6,000 appliances have caught fire in the UK in the past six years.

The "shocking figure is far worse than first thought," says the Mirror, adding that campaigners are calling for urgent changes to the product safety regulation system.

The deaths of four members of British indie band Viola Beach and their manager in a car crash in Sweden makes the front page of the Daily Star.

The background to the incident, which saw their rented car plunged more than 25m (82ft) from a bridge into a canal near Stockholm, is described as a mystery by the Daily Mirror.

The Daily Mail is among several papers to feature a graphic illustrating how a gap in the road is created when the bridge lifts vertically to allow boats to pass underneath.

'No defence'

As the prime minister begins a final diplomatic push before this week's Brussels summit on his EU reforms package, the leader writers make their contributions to the debate.

The Financial Times says the City has always been ambivalent in its attitude to the EU but if it is to prosper, the UK needs to stay in Europe, build alliances and defend its turf.

"The way to deal with this is not to head for the exit. That would leave the UK with no defences to mount against exclusion."

The Daily Express says it is concerned at "scaremongering" from British MPs, pro-EU business leaders and from Europe itself.

"Nearly 70 years ago Britain had no qualms about going it alone and the threat we faced was a terrible one. We should show the same fortitude now," it says.

The Independent says Labour's unity on Europe could help win the argument for the "In" camp, and see it recoup some of the ground the party has lost in recent months.

But the paper says party leader Jeremy Corbyn has "sadly" chosen to attack the prime minister's plans to limit benefits for new EU immigrants, a policy which appears to have the backing of many disenchanted Labour voters.


'Titanic night'

Photographs of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet grace the front pages after their success at the Baftas.

The Times says DiCaprio's best actor award for The Revenant cements his status as a frontrunner in the same category at the Oscars.

The Guardian says DiCaprio's emotionally and physically gruelling performance as a vengeful frontiersman makes him hot favourite to make it fifth time lucky at the Academy Awards after more than 20 years of trying.

The Daily Mail celebrates Winslet's supporting actress win for her role as a PR guru in the biopic of Apple founder Steve Jobs.

The Daily Mirror describes it as a "Titanic night" for both Winslet and DeCaprio, who starred together in the 1997 film about the ill-fated ocean liner.

As ever, there appears to almost as much focus on the red carpet fashion as on the award winners themselves.

Daily Telegraph fashion director Lisa Armstrong picks out a "so regal" Cate Blanchett in a multicoloured embroidered Alexander McQueen dress and Alicia Vikander in a Louis Vuitton silver-beaded black leather frock.

The Daily Mirror says Winslet won in the style stakes too, in her black Antonio Dorani creation.
