Child mental health services

The Children’s Commissioner for England has published a report on children’s access to mental health services from 2022 to 2023. An analysis of NHS England data shows: 949,200 children in England had active referrals to Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services (CYPMHS) at any point within the 2022-23 financial year; of these children and young people, 28% were still waiting at the end of the year. Reasons for referral included anxiety, depression and self-harm.
