Abstract

Mental health (MH) issues can affect all children and young people (CYP), and can form a long-term negative impact on their life prospects if left unchecked. It is of utmost importance that CYP’s voices are heard and that they are involved in decision-making and care planning. CYP aged 4–17 years old have provided an invaluable insight into their experiences of mental health services within healthcare settings. This review undertaken as part of a Masters in Advanced Professional Practice explores the CYP’s views and experiences within primary, secondary, and tertiary mental health services. Consequently, the betterment of mental health services for all CYP is sought.
