Mental Health of Children and Young People in England, 2020: Wave 1 follow-up to 2017 survey

NHS Digital: Part of Mental Health of Children and Young People Surveys (22.10.20)

This is the first in a series of follow-up reports to the Mental Health and Young People Survey 2017, exploring the mental health of children and young people in July 2020, during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and changes since 2017. Experiences of family life, education and services, and worries and anxieties during the COVID-19 pandemic are also examined. The sample for this ‘wave 1’ follow-up was based on 3,570 children and young people who took part in the MHCYP 2017 survey, with both surveys also drawing on information collected from parents.
