Answered by: Maureen Watt 9 December 2016
Data on how many young people have been refused treatment from child and adolescent mental health services is not held centrally.
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.
