There is considerable variation in how child mental health services are delivered across the UK.
Our position statement outlines the role of paediatricians in supporting children and young people’s mental health and makes key recommendations to ensure their mental health needs are met.
In 2020, RCPCH &Us brought together young people and health professionals to share reflections from the pandemic, gaps and future solutions.
Key themes covered the digital channels young people use, limitations of online therapy, signposting to services and more.
