Here is a preview of our most recent post.

  • Young people refused access to mental health facilities

    Figures show young people suffering with mental health issues are being forced into police custody as a result of NHS "places of safety" banning under sixteen's in the UK.

    The Care Quality Commission has found that 56 out of 161 facilities, which includes hospitals, will not admit people under the age of sixteen and half of them ban under seventeens. The watchdog has said a worrying number of young people now end up in police cells, reports theBBC.

    The CQC has said that people who suffer a mental health crisis in a public place should be taken to a place of safety to have their needs assessed, whether it is a specialist mental health hospital or an emergency department at a general hospital. However the reports found that many places do not accept under sixteens and some facilities in England do not accept under eighteens.
