Mental health support for young people leaving care

Barnardo’s the children and young people’s charity has published Neglected Minds: A report on mental health support for younger people leaving care.

This report highlights that two thirds of care leavers identified as having mental health needs were not receiving any help from a statutory service. It also found that one in four had faced a mental health crisis since leaving care.

Barnardo’s wants clinical commissioning groups to invest more in services specifically aimed at meeting the needs of young people leaving care, such as embedding a mental health worker within leaving care teams.
