Having walked the current system with my daughter and met many parents of our youth struggling with mental health we have no local inpatient service where children can go when feeling unsafe or suicidal. The children’s ward is packed with young people struggling they have no mental health nurses or therapies and can’t stay in to settle on new meds. They are sent home at risk offered one therapy a week and to be heard they end up doing high end things and sent miles away from families to some unsafe services. Please please consider setting up a ward or complex where young people like adults in Hereford can be treated locally and have a safe haven
