A report by NHS Digital, into the study of mental health in children and young people suggests hundreds of thousands of toddlers have mental health problems, with one in 18 suffering a disorder. The rate rose to one in ten as children went through primary school and one in seven during secondary education. By late teens the figure was one in six. NHS Digital’s study is the first survey into children’s mental health in England since 2004 and includes two to four-year-olds for the first time.
