The National Health Service (NHS) covers people of all ages. As part of the NHS, there are dedicated services for children and young people, such as CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health services) and the school nursing service.

The mental health of children and young people has emerged as a key issue of concern and it is one of the Children's Commissioner's priority issues. 

Note: The Office of the Children’s Commissioner exists to promote and protect the rights and interests of children and young people (see ‘Actors’ in the Participation chapter).
