CQC Review of Mental Health Services

For children and young people in England. The Care Quality Commission published their report of the first phase of a Government-commissioned review of mental health services for children and young people in England on 27 October.

The report is the first phase of a major thematic review requested by the Prime Minister in January 2017. It looks at the quality and accessibility of mental health services for children and young people. It summarises the current state of knowledge from across a range of sources.

CQC has drawn on existing reports, research and other evidence and its inspections of children and young people’s mental health services, as well as conversations with young people to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the current system.
