Children and young people have suffered immensely during the pandemic. But the mental health crisis facing Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) is nothing new.
CAMHS services are at breaking point. They were before the pandemic.
Tens of thousands of children are being turned away from mental health services – support they vitally need.
Parents have raised this issue. Doctors have raised this issue. The stats provide the evidence.
When will the Government admit that CAMHS services need to be better resourced?
