This issignificantly higher than England, where thefigure stands at 87.6(NCC JSNANorthamptonshire, 2015).Kettering has a relatively high number of 12to 16 year olds among its admissions whichwas 18 per 201 admissionsthan any otherregions between 2010-2013 inNorthamptonshire (Schiller, 2014).The Northamptonshirewith an averagetotal children and young people (C&YP)population of 1, 03,453 in which 13,949is estimated in Kettering. About1,478/13,949 children with mental disorderis prevalent in Kettering (NCC JSNANorthamptonshire, 2015).Prevalence estimates for mental disorder inchildren aged 11-16yrs is higher in boys(11.4%) rather than girls (7.8%) inNorthamptonshire (ChiMat, 2014).The estimated prevalence of mentaldisorders in Northamptonshire among 11-16yrs is 5,625(ONS, 2014). The prevalence isfurther broken down by prevalence ofconduct, emotional and hyperkineticdisorders (Green, 2004).Estimated children (11-16yrs) with conductdisorders in Northamptonshire is 3,245 inwhich 767(5-16yrs) is estimated inKettering. Estimated children (11-16yrs)with emotional disorders inNorthamptonshire is 2,480 in which 502 (5-16yrs) is in Kettering. The number ofestimated children (11-16yrs) withhyperkinetic disorders in Northamptonshireis 725 in which 209 (5-16yrs) in Kettering(NCC JSNA Northamptonshire JSNA, 2015;ChiMat, 2013)According to CAMHS, 3600 referrals weremade to CAMHS in 2013.2300 active caseswith CAMHS (19.8%) was reported.Admission rates for Northamptonshire were286.6 compared to England 91.3(Campion,2014).NCCconducted a survey to addressthe gap in service provisions and statisticalanalysis for future found that the modellingteam at Public Health Action Support Team(PHAST) projected a 16% increase onaverage in the numbers of mentally illchildren by 2021.(NCC Children’s JSNA,2016)In 2011/12 hospital admissions as a result ofself-harm (rate per 100,000 aged 0-17 years)in Northamptonshire (154.9) was above thatof England (115.5), the East Midlands (124.4)and statistical neighbours (125.1).The rate of hospital admissions as a result ofself-harm (rate per 100,000 aged 10-24years) in Northamptonshire has risen from419.3 in 2012/13 to 510.9 in 2013/14 andboth years were considered significantlyworse than England for the same timeperiods( NCC Children’s JSNA, 2016)In Northamptonshire, between 2010/11 and2012/13, there were 442.84 children andyoung people (aged between 10 and 24)admitted to hospital per 100,000 populationsas a result of self-harm. This compares with357.45 children and young people across theEast Midlands and 352.26 children andyoung people across England (NCCNorthamptonshire Children’s JSNA 2015).The majority of people who self-harm areaged between 11 and 25 years (Hagell,2015).According to National CAHMS supportNetwork 2011self-harming seems to be moreprevalent in older groups: a 2001 studybased on parental reports, suggests that therate among 13-15 year-olds is one and a halftimes that of 11-12 year-olds. Similarly, in alater study sample of 710 under 15 year oldsseen at a general hospital, most were agedbetween 12 and 14(Nixon B, 2011).While an estimate of 3590 people aged 11-16 years previously self-harmed, there were2940 admissions for self-harm in under 18year olds inNorthamptonshire(Campion,2014) Howeverit is possible that some younger children self-harm without presenting to anyservices(Nixon B, 2011). In 2012 in secondaryschools anecdotal evidence suggesteddeliberate self-harm rates could be as high as50%(Schiller, 2014)The greater prevalence of self-harm amongfemales was demonstrated in a studyconducted on 10-19 year-olds over a periodof 10 years, in which the majority of cases(73.1%) were women. This is echoed innational figures which show that 6.5% of girlsand 5.0% of boys reported that they hadtried to harm themselves (Nixon B, 2011).According to national CAHMS the proportionof self-harm among 11-16yrs with no mentalillness is below 2% while those with mentalproblems are higher which is more than 18%,but those with anxiety problems accounts to10% (Nixon B, 2011)As per National levels among 11-16 year olds7% have tried to harm, hurt or killthemselves (Campion, 2014). But higher withemotional (28%) and conduct disorders(21%) (Schiller, 2014). In Northamptonshirethe rates of self-harm in young womenaveraged 302 per 100,000 in 10 to 14 yearoldsand among menaveraged 67 per100,000 in 10-14 year old (Hawton, K, 2012)In 2012 teenage conceptions bythose aged 13-15 and deliveries tomothers under 18,Northamptonshire performs about30.8per 1000 population worsethan both the national average(27.7)and regional average(28.3)(NCC JSNA Northamptonshire,2015).In 2012 there were 30.4conceptions per 1,000 of femalesaged 15-17 in Kettering. Thoughbelow the Northamptonshireaverage of 30.8, Kettering is aboveboth the East Midlands (28.29)and England (27.75) rates(NCCJSNA Kettering, 2015).The overall rate of teenageconceptions in Northamptonshirehas shown a downward trend inpast years (2008-1010) from 524in 2008 to 450 in 2010. Thecounty’s teenage pregnancy ratein 2010 was 35.1 per 1,000females aged 15 to 17, which wassimilar to the national average of35.4 (NCC, 2014).Even though it shows a downwardtrend in under 18 conception ratesthan England rates, but thereducing trend in rates over thepast decade has reversed in Corby,Kettering and SouthNorthamptonshire (JSNA report,2013)The young women vulnerable tobecome teenage parents are thosein care or leaving care, those notattending school, those involved inyouth offending system, thosewho already have children andthose who underperform at school(NHS Northamptonshire, 2009).In 2010 the UK statistics revealsthat there are seven pregnanciesper 1,000 girls aged under 16(NHSCHOICES, 2012). The forecastedconception rates per 1000 femalesaged 15-17yrs in 2020 and 2015 inNorthamptonshire will be 36.6which will be higher than Englandand East Midlands average of 32.1and 31.5 respectively (JSNA report2013)Most people become sexuallyactive and start formingrelationships before 16yrs.Youngpeople in these age groups havesignificantly higher rates of poorsexual health ; figures indicate thatyoung people aged 16-24 accountfor over half of the sexuallytransmitted infections (STIs)diagnosed and, despite progressmade in tackling teenagepregnancy, 80% of under 18conceptions were 16 and 17 yearolds (PHE, 2013)

Thus are strongly associated withbehaviours that pose a risk to their health,such as smoking drug and alcohol abuse andrisky sexual behaviours (Green, H, etal, 2004)Conduct disorder is the most commonmental disorder in childhood andadolescence affecting 5299 per 100,000child population aged 11-16 year olds inNorthamptonshire. Conduct disorder is thecause of a 34% of school exclusions.Lifetime costs of each one year cohort of11-16 year olds with conduct disorder inNorthamptonshire is £795 million(Campion, 2014)The children from 11-16yrs with conductdisorders are 30% likely to indulge in riskbehaviours like smoking and 28% in druguse as well as 21% had tried to suicide(Campion, 2014; Green ,H, 2004).Among young people of 11-16yrs with anemotional disorder, 23% were smokers and20% had taken drugs at some time and 28%said that they had tried to harm or killthemselves (Green, H 2004).Poor mental health in childhood andadolescence also leads to a broad range ofpoor adult health outcomes which leads tohigher rates of adult mental disorder like;1.Depression2.Schizophrenia and mania3.Substance misuse4.Suicidal behaviour5.Personality disorder: 40–70% ofchildren with conduct disorderdevelop antisocial personalitydisorder as adults(Campion,2014)Mental health problemNational Institute for Clinical Excellence(NICE) indicates that those who haveself-harmed are 100 times more likelydie by suicide in the following year(Nixon, B, 2011)Recent statisticsconclude that rates have increased inthe UK and are now among the highestin Europe.According to the NationalInstitute for Care and Excellence, the riskof suicide has also increased (NICE2013).Self-harm also include deliberate self-harm, self-mutilation, self-injury, self-poisoning, self-cutting, overdosing andattempted suicide.

One third of theyoung women are less likely tobreast feed, and are 3 times athigher risk of smoking leading to13% of still birth, 21% high risk forprematurity and low birthweightbabies and 56% of infant mortality(PHE, 2013)Teenage pregnancy is a serioussocial problem.Having children ata young age can damage youngwomen’s health and well-beingand severely limit their educationand career prospects.Teenagemothers have 3 times the rate ofpost-natal depression (DES, 2013).The cost of teenage pregnancy tothe NHS alone is estimated to be£63m a year which placessignificant burdens on the NHSand wider public services(DES,2013).Along with the teenage pregnancythe young women riskier sexualpractises lead to other sexuallytransmitted diseases likechlamydia gonorrhoea and otherSTIs at 131.6, 29, 680 per 1000population in Northamptonshire(JSNA report, 2013)Young women with a child oftenleads to low educationalattainment which pave way tobringing up a child incredibledifficult situation and often resultsin poor outcomes for both theteenage parent and the child, inthe interim leading to long-termpoverty in both child and teenagemother ( DH, 2010).
