There is anecdotal evidence of increasing waiting times in some areas. We do not know whether or not this is due to an increase in referrals or in the prevalence of mental health conditions but will be seeking further information by commissioning a survey into the prevalence of mental illness in children and young people.</p><p> </p><p><br> <br></p><p> </p> more like this
