Children living in mental health hospitals should get help to get home. Always.
Children and young people with mental health problems or autism should never have to live in inappropriate mental health hospitals.
Good inpatient care acts as a lifeline to many young people, who get the expert support they need to get better and return home.
But for others, including some with autism or a learning disability, their mental health can get worse in that care and they and their families can struggle to get help that is right for them.
We are calling on the Government to set out strong, enforceable rights to protect children in mental health hospitals, and their families, when they need it most.
Please sign the petition to make sure the voices of young people and their families are heard. Always.
Anyone from the United Kingdom can sign this petition. We are asking for your address to verify that you live in the UK. Unfortunately people living in other countries cannot sign.
