To ask the Scottish Government how many young people have been refused treatment from child and adolescent mental health services in each year since 1999.
Answered by: Maureen Watt 9 December 2016
Data on the number of referrals received and number of referrals rejected is collected and published on the ISD website (http://www.isdscotland.org/Health-Topics/Waiting-Times/Child-and-Adolescent-Mental-Health/). Referrals rejected are referrals that do not meet the criteria for CAMHS intervention.
