Education Policy Institute, October 2018
Report from the the Education Policy Institute considering the state of child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) in England. It finds:
- Referrals to child and adolescent mental health services have risen significantly in recent years.
- Some areas have lost early intervention services supporting children and young people’s emotional and mental health and wellbeing, including those for children that receive statutory support.
- Timely and high-quality specialist care will always be necessary, and more needs to be done to ensure it is in place across the country.
- There needs to be a focus on taking demand out of the system.
