50 Per Cent Rise In Kids Going To A&E With Mental Health Issues

The number of children attending A&E with mental health problems has risen by more than 50 per cent since the beginning of the so-called covid crisis. An investigation by The Telegraph newspaper revealed that over 2,200 children were referred for emergency health treatment in May of this year compared to just over 1,400 children in May 2019.

According to The Telegraph:

Experts say children have struggled with schools being closed and without face-to-face interaction with their peers. NHS data reveal that nearly 27,000 children are being prescribed antidepressants each month, up more than eight per cent from 2019. While most are teenagers, 25 a month are aged six or under, and more than 1,000 are aged seven to 11.

Waiting lists for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) have jumped by more than a third in some regions, according to NHS England Trusts.

The number of children admitted to acute wards with eating disorders more than doubled in the three months to June 2021, when compared with the same period in 2019.

NHS chiefs have warned of a mental health pandemic among children, which they predict will unfold over years rather than months, as the effect of successive lockdowns take their toll.

The numbers of children self-harming and becoming preoccupied with thoughts of suicide have risen sharply, according to research by the mental health charity, Place2Be.

NHS officials have warned of children as young as five having panic attacks about playdates. Cases of children being admitted to hospital with acute eating disorders have more than doubled.

This is grim stuff. Back in April (and reported here), the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) reported that lockdowns are having a devastatingly negative impact on child development. Data from 50,000 pupils and a survey of schools across England, revealed that an increased number of four and five-year-olds needed urgent help with their language skills.

The EEF said that the lockdowns deprived the youngest children of social contact and experiences essential for developing their vocabulary. Sally Miner, a head teacher at a school in Walsall said:

“All the research shows that if a child does have issues with language at that age, by adulthood they’re four times more likely to struggle with reading, three time more likely to have mental health issues, twice as likely to be unemployed and have social-mobility issues, so getting this right at such an early age is literally the key to children’s futures.”

Lockdown is child abuse by other means. Those who impose them are child abusers.

Using psychotropic drugs to “help ” children, or adults is harmful and destroys lives. There is overwhelming evidence that they can cause serious harm, often permanent., whether prescription or bought on the street corner under a different name, the outcome is the same. The medical authorities have been covering up the truth for decades, whilst big pharma rakes in billions by profiting in misery. These ” children of the lockdowns”, are just another commodity on there accountants balance sheet.

Antidepressants are a chemical cosh ,prescribed by lazy Drs , psychiatrists and psychologists. Anyone in any doubt about this, need only pick up a copy of the reference book, ” The British medical association guide to prescription drugs”, or similar publication. These days this information is available at the click of a mouse. Effects from these drugs, include a whole range of psychical and mental problems. Including vomiting, weight gain, anxiety and suicidal tendencies. Even children and adults who don’t notice initially anything out of the ordinary. Have been known many years later to have sever moods swings and psychotic incidents.

This child abuse caused by the last 18 months was completely unnecessary. Like everything else we have suffered as a people. All because of a computer generated fictitious virus, and a plague that never was. Being used to further evil agendas.

There are natural ways to help with mental health problems and depression. But ultimately the only real solution to unhappiness, is being happy. Unfortunately in this new world of fascist misery, happiness is an increasingly rare commodity.


My experience of anti-depressants is that the cure is worse than the disease. They turned me into a zombie and made me feel absolutely terrible. In the end I refused to take anymore despite my doctor wanting me to continue. I put the ones I had left down the toilet, best place for them.

Meditation certainly helped me and I also feel very strongly that we need to go back to a simpler life, less based on technology and globalism.

Good to hear from you Jennie, very true.

Even when the schools are open, the children still have NO face to face interaction because of the masks. The insanity has got to stop!

Colin G

children need to see facial expressions and hiding them behind masks is a terrible way to grow up and learn
