One in eight children in England have mental health disorder

Health and Social Care Correspondent

One in eight children and young people aged between five and 19 had a mental disorder in England last year.

The Government has pledged to provide more support and more money but a third of young people last year did not receive the specialist help they needed.

Our health and social care correspondent Victoria Macdonald has been speaking to one 16-year-old boy about his mental health.
