(UK) "There are 800,000 children [in Britain] living with mental health disorders"

Dec 7, 2017, UK Huffington: The Crisis In Children’s Mental Health Cannot Be Resolved With Warm Words http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/childrens-mental-health_uk_5a28f9cae4b0fa7986121856 According to the Children’s Commissioner, there are 800,000 children living with mental health disorders - that’s the equivalent of at least three children in every classroom. Demand for mental health support has reached unprecedented levels, and yet three in four children with a diagnosable mental health condition still do not receive the support they need. For years, teachers and families have been left floundering, unclear as to how best to spot and tackle mental health problems among the children in their care. Many have struggled to get any help when a child is in difficulty until they reach crisis point.
