NHS encourages children and young people to seek help

England’s top children and young people’s mental health doctor is encouraging youngsters to seek help if they need it, as NHS Digital’s new survey shows there has been a rise in mental health problems in children and young people during the pandemic.

The survey shows one in six children and young people had a probable mental health disorder in July during the first wave, compared to one in nine in 2017.
