Over the last two weeks we’ve been looking at teenage mental health - we’ve talked to doctors, teachers, parents and to teenagers themselves. Last year referrals to Child And Adolescent Mental Health services were at their highest level ever. How have we got to this point? How can the situation be improved? We ask a panel of experts – Claire Murdoch, National Director for Mental Health, NHS England, Lisa McNally, director of Public Health in Sandwell, Sarah Hughes, chief executive of the Centre for Mental Health and Emma Thomas, Chief Executive of Young Minds.
