Children’s Voices: A Review of the Literature Pertinent to Looked‐After Children’s Views of Mental Health Services
Julie Davies, John Wright
Published: 23 July 2007

Key Practitioner Message

  • Vulnerable children should be given equal choice and involvement in their treatment decisions and not miss out on the wider NHS drive for service user involvement.
  • Incorporating children’s views will by definition require a comprehensive service creating financial and training challenges.
  • While realistic, asking looked‐after children about their views requires that a number of complex issues be addressed: methodologically, reflexively and ethically.
