Petition Make the maximum wait for CAMHS assesments no more than 6 months.

Currently the wait to get a child assesed for autism is almost 1.5 years
This is not acceptable and can have serious implications on the child's mental health, as well as causing serious problems within the home. This petition is to try and persuade the government to reduce these waiting times.

More details

Waiting times are taken from friends currently on the waiting list in Warwickshire.
