Teenage mental health inquiry promised – The Times

March 4, 2014

The Times covers the announcement of a government-backed national investigation in the mental health issues affecting children and adolescents in the UK:

A national investigation into the scale of mental health problems among children and teenagers will be carried out, ministers have pledged, amid fears that escalating numbers are suffering from a range of illnesses from depression to anorexia.

Experts from the medical profession and charities say it is outrageous that no research has been conducted for ten years into how many youngsters are afflicted by mental problems, especially given the dramatic changes that have taken place in their lives.
