“Mental health problems often develop early and, between the ages of 5-15, one in every nine children has a mental disorder. Half of all mental health problems are established by the age of 14, with three quarters established by 24 years of age. Prompt access to appropriate support enables children and young people experiencing difficulties to maximise their prospects for a healthy and happy life. While the latest prevalence survey has shown only a modest increase in diagnosable problems since 2004 – from 10.1% to 11.2% – this overall figure includes concerning rates of mental distress particularly amongst late teenage girls” NHS Long Term Plan January 2019

“We want to ensure children are offered a range of therapies to suit their needs and individual preferences are placed at the heart of their care.” Paul Chrisp, Director of the Centre for Guidelines NICE, 23rd January 2019
