To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what data is available on mental health outcomes for care leavers.
8 January 2021
National data on mental health outcomes for care leavers is not currently available. NHS England and NHS Improvement are carrying out exploratory work to include data on care leavers in the Mental Health Outcomes programme. In order to better understand outcomes for children and young people, including care leavers, NHS England is also working with children and young people’s mental health services to drive the use of outcome measures and flow of this data to its national data set.
