As you read this, around 1 in every 10 children has a diagnosable mental health problem. This year, in England alone, the cost of mental health problems is estimated to reach £109billion. If we don't act now depression will become the most frequent cause of death and disability in industrialised nations by 2020. By treating our children now, and tackling these problems at their root the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families is making a tremendous difference to the rest of their lives and the future shape of our society.
