Anxiety and Mental Health
Mental health problems in childhood are very common, affecting around 1 in 10 children. They are even more common amongst disabled children. For example, children with a learning disability are four and a half times more likely to experience poor mental health than children who do not have a learning disability. However, parents often report long waits to access the right support for their child. This is not helped by a lack of information about the services that are available.
You can see what services and support are available in Hull here:
We are currently working our Clinical Commissioning Group and provider for CAMHS to look at what support is currently is place, what parents are telling us is required and what can be done to make positive changes.
