Mental Health Treatment for Children and Young People

The NSPCC has released figures, following a freedom of information request to NHS trusts in England, which show that between 2015 and 2017, from a total of 652,023 cases referred to child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), 109,613 children were turned away. The number could be significantly higher, as one in five Trusts which responded to the request failed to report the number of rejected referrals.
