'I'm like a puppet to mental health - I hear voices'
A young mental health patient has spoken of her experiences in youth services after a charity expressed concerns over delays in patients getting a first appointment.
More than 1,000 young people out of 18,000 referred to Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) in 2016 waited more than six months for a first appointment.
People referred for assessment by CAMHS should be seen within 28 days.
NSPCC Cymru said it was a worrying picture.
Abi Larcombe, 17, who was seen after she tried to take her own life, has suffered with mental health issues since she was about 11.
