CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) provide vital Mental Health services for Under-18s in the UK. IT is severely underfunded, turning away many people struggling with mental illnesses. Less than 1% of the NHS budget is spent on CAMHS , and with mental health among young people rising , CAMHS funding is very necessary right now. 

The government have promised to increase the overall mental health budget by 2024, but this isn't soon enough for those currently being treated or on the month-long waiting lists, which vary from 14 to 200 days. 

More CAMHS funding would change many family's lives and positively impact many others up and down the country. Lets stop ignoring this important issue,
