Children and Young People's Health Outcomes Forum

On 26 July 2012 the Children and Young People's Health Outcomes Forum set out its recommendations to improve children and young people’s health results. The mental health sub-group identified in particular the importance of starting well and effective parenting, noting that parental mental health is an important factor in determining the child's mental health and that maternal mental health problems during pregnancy increase the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes as well as later neuro-developmental problems.
