There have been public outcries about the lack of treatment facilities for adolescents who are suffering from psychiatric illnesses and maladjustment, particularly about those admitted to adult psychiatric wards because there has been nowhere else for them to go.

This pilot survey shows what is being done to help these youngsters, where there are gaps in the services, and how intractable are some of the problems.
