    A coroner has expressed concern at the difficulty of getting face-to-face appointments with GPs and other health professionals after a 17-year-old boy suffering from mental health problems was found dead. Sean Mark, who described himself as an “anxious paranoid mess”, was desperate for help but felt “palmed off” when he asked for assistance, an inquest heard. He was found dead in his bedroom four months after a phone consultation with a GP and before he had spoken to anyone in person about his concerns. The area coroner, Rosamund Rhodes-Kemp, recorded a verdict of death by misadventu

    Deaths, staff shortages and a culture of life-threatening self-harm are exposing deep fears about the quality of mental health care in hospitals for children and young people. Since 2019, at least 20 patients aged 18 or under have died in NHS or privately-run units, the BBC has found. A further 26 have died within a year of leaving units, amid claims of a lack of ongoing community support. The NHS said it had "invested record amounts... to meet record demand". Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) units look after about 4,000 patients with many different diagn

    Key points The report highlights the following key findings about children and young people's mental health: One in six children aged 6 to 16 were identified as having a probable mental health problem in July 2021, a huge increase from one in nine in 2017. Boys aged 6 to 10 are more likely to have a probable mental disorder than girls, but in 17 to 19-year-olds this pattern reverses, with rates higher in young women than young men. By the age of eight, 7 in 10 children report at least one adverse childhood experience (ACE).Three in four adolescents exposed to ACEs devel

    Hundreds of children suffering from mental health issues are attending A&E each day, with some waiting up to five days in emergency departments, The Independent can reveal. Internal NHS data leaked to The Independent, shows the number of young patients waiting more than 12 hours from arrival has also more than doubled in the last year. A national survey of senior A&E doctors by the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM) found in some areas children’s mental health services have worsened in the last three years, while the majority of respondents warned there were no childr

    The mothers of two teenage boys who died after failures in their care have called on the government to make "urgent improvements" to how children with disabilities are assessed. Sammy Alban-Stanley, 13, and 14-year-old Oskar Nash both died in 2020. Inquests for both boys recorded they had received inadequate care from local authorities and mental health services. The calls were made in an open letter to the secretaries of state for health and social care, and education. Patricia Alban and Natalia Nash asked Sajid Javid and Nadim Zahawi to make fundamental changes to several care

    HSIB identified a patient safety incident involving an 18 year old transgender man. The Patient had been referred to CAMHS at 15 years old with concerns about his mental health and gender identity. At 16 years old, the Patient was referred to the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS). At 17 and a half years old, the Patient was advised by the GIDS that he would not be seen within GIDS before he turned 18 years old. His referral was then transferred to the waiting list of an adult gender dysphoria clinic (GDC), where his previous waiting time with the GIDS was accounted for. However,

    Children and young people who are anxious, depressed or are self-harming are being denied help from swamped NHS child and adolescent mental health services, GPs have revealed. Even under-18s with an eating disorder or psychosis are being refused care by overstretched CAMHS services, which insist that they are not sick enough to warrant treatment. In one case, a crisis CAMHS team in Wales would not immediately assess the mental health of an actively suicidal child who had been stopped from jumping off a building earlier the same day unless the GP made a written referral. In another, a

    In his report, the Coroner raised the following concerns: There did not appear to be any national guidance or standards that directed or encouraged appropriate sharing of risk information and care plans with the local pharmacy. As a result, the pharmacy was unsighted on the fact that the treating psychiatric team had a safety plan involving Sam’s parents being responsible for handling and administering all medication. Had the pharmacy been aware of this plan, it is likely that they would either have refused to provide the medication with which Sam overdosed or, at least, contacted Sam’

    This is a joint consultation published by the Department of Health and Social Care and the Ministry of Justice. The Mental Capacity Act applies in England and Wales, but some aspects of its application are devolved in Wales. The Welsh Government has therefore informed this consultation. The LPS will apply to people over the age of 16, and the Department for Education has been involved in the development of this new system. This briefing paper from the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) provides a summary of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards, an amendment to the Mental Ca

    In her report, the Coroner raised the following concerns: During the inquest, evidence was heard about the differences in the way CAMHS Hospitals and Adult mental Health Hospitals approached the care of the patients on their wards. When hearing evidence during the inquest it was established that when a child turned 18, and was a patient on a Mental health ward, once transferred to an adult Mental Health Hospital they would immediately be treated in accordance with the adult provisions. It was accepted that there is currently no one in-patient provision for people between the ages

    An independent witness at the inquest highlighted that: Rebecca was at very high risk after discharge, and she did not have adequate medical review in between 6 July and her death on 19 July. the plan to see her once a week after discharge was inadequate. In her report, the Coroner raised the following concerns: In this case there was confusion as to whether on an inpatient transfer there should be a Form 2 to go alongside the Form 1 procedure. As well as clarifying this process with all providers concerned, consideration should be given that a clear, documented pro

    In this report, the Coroner highlights the following concerns: Mary was referred to the mental health team in November 2019 and was assessed in January 2020, some three weeks later than should have been. There was a delay in Mary receiving psychological therapy. She was still on the waiting list at the time of her death. The evidence was that at the date of inquest, there continued to be a delay in service users receiving psychological therapy. Evidence was heard that balancing capacity and demand, which has increased, remains a challenge. The cases referred are of increasi

    The death of a "vulnerable" transgender teenager who struggled to get help was preventable, a coroner has said. Daniel France, 17, was known to Cambridgeshire County Council and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Foundation Trust (CPFT) when he took his own life on 3 April 2020. The coroner said his death showed a "dangerous gap" between services. When he died, Mr France was in the process of being transferred from children and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) in Suffolk to adult services in Cambridgeshire. The First Response Service, which provides help for people ex

    Coroner's Matters of Concern The concern in this case is that a vulnerable young person can be known to the County Council and Mental Health Trust and yet not receive the support they need pending substantive treatment. Danny was repeatedly assessed as not meeting the criteria for urgent intervention and yet the waiting list for psychological therapy was likely to be over a year from point of first presentation. That gap between urgent and non-urgent services is potentially dangerous for a vulnerable young person, where there is a chronic risk of an impulsive act. Although I unde

    A quarter of children referred for specialist mental health care because of self-harm, eating disorders and other conditions are being rejected for treatment, a new report has found. The study by the Education Policy Institute warns that young patients are waiting an average of two months for help, and frequently turned away. It follows research showing that one in three mental health trusts are only accepting cases classed as the most severe. GPs have warned that children were being forced to wait until their condition deteriorated - in some cases resulting in a suicide attempt -
