Abstract

This chapter reports on a study into the way in which young people and their family carers identify and understand emotional difficulties. The project helped a small number of young people to talk about their own experiences of mental distress, how they coped and the support they received. In addition, it explored how family carers and care staff respond to the young people's needs and how well health, social care and other services support them.
