The 1999 and 2004 surveys sampled from Child Benefit records. For the 2017 survey a stratified multistage random probability sample of 18,029 children was drawn from NHS Patient Register in October 2016. Children and young people were eligible to take part if they were aged 2 to 19, lived in England, and were registered with a GP.

In line with previous research, the professional services most commonly contacted for mental health reasons were teachers and GPs (Ford et al. 2007; Newlove and Delgado, 2015). This is not surprising as families tend to have ongoing and easy access to both schools and primary health care. The Government’s recent green paper ‘Transforming children and young people’s mental health provision’ recognises the importance of schools. The paper proposes that mental health support teams should work with a cluster of schools ensuring they are offering support to children and young people not in mainstream education, and that designated mental health leads should be based in schools (DH and DoE, 2017).

Around one in sixteen (6.4%) of 17 to 19 year olds experienced more than one mental disorder at the same time. The Mental Health of Children and Young People (MHCYP) surveywas previously conducted with 5 to 15 year olds in 1999 and 5 to 16 year olds in 2004, who were living in Britain and sampled from Child Benefit records. For the 2017 survey, a stratified multistage random probability sample of children was drawn from the NHS Patient Register in October 2016.

Inpatient provision for children and young people with mental health problems. July 2017

Inpatient provision for children and young people with mental health problems. July 2017

One aspect which has received less attention in recent years is inpatient care. Also known as ‘Tier Four’ services, these are facilities for children and young people with mental health problems who require hospital admission. These can be separate facilities or part of a larger facility that includes units for adults or outpatient services. The Education Policy Institute has analysed the literature and available data to establish what is currently known about the state of inpatient mental health services for children and young people. Information in this report is derived from national datasets including the NHS Digital monthly Mental Health statistics and the NHS England Five Year Forward View for Mental Health Dashboard. We have also included data provided by NHS England on request, and information from the existing literature.

While the rate of ASD appeared to be higher in younger age groups, this was not statistically significant. If the sample had been larger, it is possible that a difference in rates by age group might have been significant. Although developmental problems are often more common among younger children, research suggests that most adults with an ASD diagnosed in childhood struggle with significant impairment (Howlin et al., 2004). Because few parent reports and no teacher reports were obtained for those in the oldest age group, it had been expected that some cases of ASD might have been missed in this group. Other methodological factors, described in detail in the Survey Design and Methods Report, may also have affected the reliability of age group comparisons.

38 Discussion The effects of new technology and social media on overall health and wellbeing are still relatively unknown. Sampasa-Kanyinga and Lewis (2015) found an independent association between using social media sites for more than two hours per day and self-reported poor mental health, increased levels of psychological distress and suicidal ideation. This prevalence survey also found an association between mental disorders and spending more than four hours on social media per day, whether it was a school or non-school day. Young people with a disorder were also more likely to agree that they spend longer online than they intend to.

Many children and young people have some rituals or superstitions, e.g. not stepping on the cracks in the pavement, having to go through a special goodnight ritual, having to wear lucky clothes for exams, or needing a lucky mascot for school sports matches. It is also common for young people to go through phases when they seem obsessed by one particular subject or activity, e.g. cars, a pop group, a football team. But what we want to know is whether the child has any rituals or obsessions that go beyond this.

Transformation of mental health services for children and young people in England

Transformation of mental health services for children and young people in England

Using the outcome measures is just one part of the collaborative approach that is critical to the success of CYP IAPT. The project is making a concerted effort to empower young service users by establishing their position as equal partners in the therapeutic relationship (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSM9Z1oDYjw). All services involved in the project are committed to hearing the views of children, young people, and families, and acting on them to make improvements and share good practice. As well as working closely with children and adolescents who are seeing CYP IAPT practitioners, the implementation team is also being advised by groups of young advisors from across the country who have had a key role in the development of every stage of the project, from interviewing potential teams and presenting at conferences to helping with the design of training courses and even teaching on them. Services are considering how to change to accept self-referrals or referrals from schools rather than necessitating a referral via the primary care physician. Many

really nice home at night while I go to a dump. They just purely intimidate. They get this £25 Parker pen out just to write your prescription. Why can’t they use a shitty biro or pencil like we have to? That’s what really does intimidate me” (Services et al., 2010). Not all findings were negative, however. A number of children spoke about their relationships in positive and happy terms: identifying these as some of their most important sources of coping and support. Importantly, children who identified positive relationships with at least one parent or carer, emphasised that these caregivers would be the first people they would speak to when they became symptomatic, emphasising the importance of caregiving relationships for early intervention and management of mental health and emotional problems amongst children (Walsh et al., 2011).

Online mental health support for young people. November 2017

In the 2016 document Implementing the Five Year Forward View, NHS England proposed the further use of ‘digitally-enabled mental health services’ 11 The government has now included examples of online mental health support services on the NHS Choices website. 12 The commissioning of individual support services is, however, a matter for local clinical commissioning groups and local authorities so progress across the country in this area has so far been variable. The way in which data is currently collected at a national level through the national minimum dataset also incentivises investment in traditional services, as young people using online counselling or other self-referral services are not included as part of the total count of young people accessing mental health care.

Enhancing the care of children and young people with mental health issues

Enhancing the care of children and young people with mental health issues

Children and young people, it is suggested, have more stressors in their lives than ever before in both school and social environments, with the pressure to succeed being immense (Healey, 2017). Mental illness refers to a wide range of mental health conditions that cause a disturbance of feelings and emotions (Healey, 2017). In 2016, in the UK alone, 7.6% of children over the age of 12 had severe to moderate depression, with 10% of children over the age of 11 engaging in self-harm (Haefner, 2016). Korkodilos (2016), identifies suicide as being the leading cause of death in young people in the UK over the last five years; with over half of all mental health conditions starting before the age of 14 (Haefner, 2016). These statistics identify the need for change and more opportunity for nurses to understand the complexities of a child or young person with a mental health concern.
