What is the state of children’s mental health today? report

The national data currently available relates to the mental health of young people ten years ago. The most recent national survey of mental health among children and young people in Britain was carried out in 2004 by the Office for National Statistics and published by the Health and Social Care Information Centre.
In its report into child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), the House of Commons Health Committee stated that the “lack of reliable data about the state of children’s and young people’s mental health in 2014” had been one of the most frequent observations made to the inquiry.
