1. Introduction

The South Gloucestershire Children and Young People’s Mental Health Needs Assessment (CYPMHNA) is the first of its kind for South Gloucestershire, and is complementary to the recently completed South Gloucestershire Adult Mental Health Needs Assessment.

The CYPMHNA explores the current and projected mental health needs of children and young people in South Gloucestershire aged 0-18 years taking into account risk and protective factors, service provision, and the potential consequences of poor mental health across the life course.

The CYPMHNA collates data and evidence with the experience and views of children and young people, their parents and carers, and health professionals.
