Child mental health services are missing targets

on in News

A child could be referred to Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) for a range of reasons.

These can include serious mental health problems, self-harming or eating disorders, or other common mental health issues such as ADHD, anxiety or depression.

 

New figures show that about 3,400 children started treatment at CAMHS services in Scotland in the quarter ending June 2014, though these official figures exclude NHS Lothian and NHS Highland, so the true figure will presumably be higher.
