The map below shows what each clinical commissioning group in the country spent on mental health services for children and young people last year.

New analysis by the Royal College of Psychiatrists looked at what each CCG spent on children and young people’s mental health and eating disorder services in 2016-17 based on the latest update to NHS England’s mental health dashboard.

It then took the Office for National Statistics mid year population estimates to work out what each CCG spent per child and young person aged 0-17 that year. The population estimates are not weighted in terms of need and deprivation.

The data shows a wide variation in spending per CCG on CYP services in 2016-17, with a handful spending more than £100 per child, while Tameside and Glossop CCG spent £9.69 per young person.

The lowest spenders per head include “outstanding” ranked CCGs such as Hillingdon, Hardwick and Harrow, as well as areas of high proportional general mental health spending such as Brighton and Hove, West London and Central London .

It also includes areas of high deprivation, which often creates a greater demand for mental health services, such as Brighton and Hove, Bradford City, and Sandwell and West Birmingham.
