Children’s mental health and the Covid crisis
April 13 - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Over the past year, much of our time and energy has been rightly consumed by the Covid crisis. However, the NHS has faced a number of other crises that must now be addressed more actively. Young people have been struggling to access effective mental health support for a long time. Even before Covid-19 arrived, more than 100,000 young people were being turned away from Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) every year. Over the past year, this number has risen exponentially. Many children are now turning to adverse coping strategies, where others are unfortunately not coping at all.
