We're calling for more support for young people with mental health issues
Today we join a coalition of charities, celebrities, MPs, and academics calling on the Government to increase investment into mental health services – giving mental health equality with physical health.
75% of children and young people experiencing a mental health problem are thought to not access any treatment. And of those young people who need support, we're specifically worried about those who have suffered abuse or neglect.
Last year, around 5,000 abused children whose mental health was suffering as a result of their horrific experiences called ChildLine. More and more children are telling us about problems accessing services.
