Education Policy Institute, July 2017
In a new report, the Education Policy Institute (EPI) has examined the state of child and adolescent mental health inpatient services in England. The analysis explores the latest evidence and NHS data on admissions, quality of care, staffing and capacity.
The research highlights 5 challenges to raising standards in young people’s mental health provision:
Minimum standards not met
Provision of beds
Young people in inpatient care
Young people are being left in hospital for longer than necessary due to a lack of community services
