Children and Young People’s Mental Health: Taking Early Action
6 July 2017
One in 10 children suffers from depression, anxiety or another diagnosable mental health problem, and 75% of mental illness starts before the age of 18. Official figures from NHS Digital show admissions for under-18s self-harm have been increasing for five years in a row. Adding to it an estimated £105bn costs every year on mental ill health, prioritising children’s mental health is essential.
