"Attention UK fans! We’re excited to exclusively announce that the band are heading out on tour around the British Isles in March 2018...."

No you're feckin' not - as usual, you are ONLY touring Great Britain (Scotland, England and Wales)
Allow me to re-arrange your face, sometimes I'd really like to get to know you better

The lack of funding and resources for mental health services particularly for children and adolescents. And watching your darling child suffer.

I'm sorry you and your family are having a hard time. Mental health services are chronically underfunded, particularly, as you say, for children. We are letting young people down.

I hope you get all the help you need soon.

Thank you. We have been fortunate in accessing some help but there's a way to go yet. Feel for others in similar and no doubt worse situations who must feel trapped.

If I were you I'd go on the Mind website and try to find out as much as I can, specifically, about your child's condition and what resources are available in the charity sector, particularly within the local area. Try to gain the best understanding you can for yourself and your child. Your local carer's centre should also provide you with practical advice and support.

Call me cynical but when it comes to the recent emphasis on child and adolescent mental health provision I am sensing a right wing agenda. In my experience the situation is often worse once young people approach adulthood. Who in their right mind thinks it's a good idea for an unwell 17 year old to hold on in there under the care and support of a GP & social worker until they are old enough for an adult mental health assessment which, btw,won't guarantee them access to a woefully underfunded adult mental health service? In an ideal world early clinical intervention would enable children to recover before they reach adulthood. Thus, in the grand scheme of things, freeing up financial resources for Adult provision? Get'em all well and out to work paying taxes? I don't think so under our current government.


:oops: Sorry, Rant over! I hope you find someone who can help.

Thank you for the excellent recommendation of the Mind site (even if it reduced me to tears reading it). The local mental health service for children is so overworked (and, undoubtedly for multiple reasons, understaffed) that only those considered to be at high risk of severe self harm can get onto the waiting list which I've heard is a year long. No idea if the potential tax payers fare much better. Through a fortuitous conversation we've made a very good connection recently though. A long haul but maybe a glimmer on the horizon.

Mental health awareness week but today we have been dealing with the fallout from some unbelievably callous comments. Will not back away from this.
