Rising number of children with mental health needs left in police cells, report finds

Rising number of children with mental health needs left in police cells, report finds
- Children with mental health problems are being held in police cells, on adult wards, or moved to inpatient care out of their local area because of “serious gaps” in the system, a report reveals.
One in 10 local health areas has no plan to improve crisis care for young people according to the Education Policy Institute (EPI), despite acknowledgement from the Government for clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to improve in this field. Less than a third (31.6 per cent) had an improvement plan in place.
