Child mental health problems

20th June 2007

A major children’s charity has claimed that one in 10 young people suffer from some form of significant mental health problem.

Pointing to a study of 8,000 children, the NCH said it found the prevalence of emotional problems and conduct disorders had doubled since the 1990s. However, other experts have cast doubt on the charity’s interpretation of the findings. NCH will publish its final findings later in the year, which will coincide with the launch of a high profile campaign.
