HALF of Councils in England hit child and adolescent mental health.

Half the councils in England had cut or frozen budgets for 

child and adolescent mental health 
between 2010-11 and 2014-15. 

A health select committee report last year warned that 
"in many areas early intervention services are being cut or are suffering from
insecure or short-term funding”. 

This month it was revealed that the number of children 
being placed on adult wards because of a shortage of beds 
on children's wards had increased by 10% this year.

SHOCKING mores because the NHS is under so much pressure especially hospitals.

Vikki Lucy Counsellor says::  
And when they get there 
(if you can actually get them there) 
A&E are too busy to do anything, 
and there's no one from CAMHS available to see them.
