Video: Mental health in children – deciding what’s best together


Audience: healthcare professionals, young people

Does making decisions in partnership with children and their parents improve child mental health? 1 in 10 children aged 5 to 16 suffer from a mental health disorder. But, worryingly, it’s estimated that 70% of these young people have not had the appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.

This short film made by the National Children’s Bureau’s Young Research Advisors looks at findings from research conducted by UCL’s Children’s Policy Research Unit and discusses how we decide what ‘appropriate’ mental health services should look like. You can read the full CPRU case study here:
