'Vast gap' in child mental health support in England

'Vast gap' in child mental health support in England There is a "vast gap" in the support provided by the NHS for children with mental health problems, the Children's Commissioner in England says.

She said waiting times were too long and was concerned about numbers being rejected by services in some areas.

It comes as the NHS prepares to publish a major report into mental health problems among the young. BBC News
