CQC completes initial review of mental health services for children and young people

The report of the first phase of a Government-commissioned review of mental health services for children and young people in England  has been officially released.

The report is the first phase of a major thematic review requested by the Prime Minister in January 2017. The CQC has drawn on existing reports, research and other evidence and its inspections of children and young people’s mental health services, as well as conversations with young people to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the current system.

The report confirms many of the issues raised in the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health published in 2016 and in particular, comments on the difficulties children and young people face in accessing appropriate support for their mental health concerns from a system that is fragmented and where services vary in quality.
