And at least one in 10 children will experience a diagnosable mental health condition. 50 per cent of issues develop by the age of 14 years and 75 per cent by 24 years.
Because of this we have established a dedicated young people's mental health research unit.
We are a team of experienced professionals who are passionate about improving the care and support provided to young people, so they can reach their full potential.
We’re excited about developing new partnerships with clinicians, young people, family members, academics, researchers and commissioners.
Together we can drive forward research that will improve services and make a real difference.
Our research findings will inform the development of impactful, evidence-based service improvements; which will be shared with all providers of child and adolescent mental health services.
