This report explores the issue of child and adolescent mental health in England. It sets out the latest available data on prevalence and trends over the last five years, and in the process highlights the fractured and inconsistent nature of the data available on this issue. This research identifies a significant ‘treatment gap’, where children and young people are unable to get the help they need; have to wait months for treatment; or are treated in the wrong place. The report also provides a brief synopsis of recent policy developments to address these issues.
