The Care Quality Commission have published a ‘Review of children and young people’s mental health services’ which finds too many children and young people have a poor experience of care and some are unable to access timely and appropriate support. It also found that people working with them do not always have the skills or capacity to identify mental health problems or are able to access the right support at the right time. Safety is seen as the greatest overall area of concern in specialist child and adolescent mental health services. Full recommendations will be made in the thematic review due to be published in March 2018.
