Unaccompanied young people’s mental health

By July 10, 2018National News

The Children’s Society has published a report looking at the mental health needs of unaccompanied young people aged 10 years to 25 years old, and the mental health support that is available to them in England and Wales.

Findings from a literature review, freedom of information requests and interviews with service providers and 10 unaccompanied young people show that common mental health issues experienced include: trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder; bereavement and missing family; and post-migration stress.

The report examines the barriers unaccompanied young people face in accessing mental health support and considers best practice models in mental health support to unaccompanied young people.
