This report is compiled by 41 academics, charity sector experts and children's play specialists. The report claims that unless the mental health crisis for children and young people, exposed by the pandemic, is addressed urgently by the UK Government, it may become entrenched long after lockdowns end, and will have a lasting, life changing impact on those affected.
