Here, on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:08.

It's believed half of mental health problems begin before the age of 15.

:00:09.:00:12.

However some young people are waiting more than a year

:00:13.:00:15.

to access Calms, a mental health service specifically

:00:16.:00:18.

Charities and youth organisations say there's a postcode

:00:19.:00:22.

Our health correspondent, Lisa Summers, reports.

:00:23.:00:34.

I had two parents who were drug addicts. Courtney says the mental

:00:35.:00:42.

health problems started at 12. I was having panic attacks. Over coffee

:00:43.:00:50.

with members of the Scottish youth Parliament, she talks about losing

:00:51.:00:52.

both parents to drug addiction and the struggle getting help. I

:00:53.:00:57.

accessed services once and didn't go back. He went guaranteed the same

:00:58.:01:00.

person twice. You are telling your story over and over again. You won't

:01:01.:01:04.

get anywhere because you will feel every emotion you felt before it

:01:05.:01:10.

happened, you will feel again. They share similar experiences here. I

:01:11.:01:15.

saw things and then use and no one should ever see. I was brought up to

:01:16.:01:20.

the issues, bottle them up, stay quiet. I suffered with an eating

:01:21.:01:27.

disorder. It was a battle. It is something I live with today. Erin

:01:28.:01:32.

got support Alex Cooper the stranded when she got to university. I was

:01:33.:01:38.

spiralling out of control. I went for help. It was five months before

:01:39.:01:43.

I got a letter through and I didn't go to my appointment because I had

:01:44.:01:48.

finished my exams and was moving to Glasgow. Scottish Government targets

:01:49.:01:52.

have been missed ever since they were introduced. Most recently, they

:01:53.:01:56.

showed that 22% of those referred were not seen within 18 weeks. 708

:01:57.:02:01.

children would more than one year to be seen by a counsellor. The service

:02:02.:02:07.

is oversubscribed. It is difficult to get a quick appointment. The

:02:08.:02:11.

threshold is pretty high. We have to be quite distressed and in quite a

:02:12.:02:21.

state, quite ill. This is desert of early intervention that can make a

:02:22.:02:24.

difference. This premise funded their mental health kit bags. I am

:02:25.:02:32.

feeling a little bit angry, but I am mostly feeling really happy. Local

:02:33.:02:39.

authorities say budget pressures have led to a lack of psychologist

:02:40.:02:43.

and support staff. The government says it is investing in support

:02:44.:02:47.

services to meet targets but say it is up to targets to do more in

:02:48.:02:51.

schools. It is a postcode lottery. There are local authorities with

:02:52.:02:53.

great mental health and well-being There are local authorities with

:02:54.:02:57.

strategies already in place in local authority areas. We are not starting

:02:58.:03:04.

from a zero point. There are good practices in many areas. We just

:03:05.:03:08.

need to nature that is the same throughout the country. These young

:03:09.:03:14.

people say it helps them to talk, now it will help others, they hope.

:03:15.:03:20.

In generations to come, we will have continual problems. Young boys need

:03:21.:03:26.

to know they can talk about their feelings. The more you hear other

:03:27.:03:31.

people's stories, it begins to give me hope for the future.

:03:32.:03:35.

A charity which supports survivors of sex abuse is asking the Scottish

:03:36.:03:37.

FA to think again about the man they have appointed

:03:38.:03:40.

to chair their review of child abuse in football.

:03:41.:03:42.

The SFA announced earlier this month that Martin Henry

:03:43.:03:44.

would take on that role, but the charity say concerns have

:03:45.:03:47.

SFA match official Hugh Stevenson and physio John Hart, both men now

:03:48.:04:07.

dead, but the anger and concern that allegations they had abused young

:04:08.:04:11.

footballers were not dealt with properly is still very much present.

:04:12.:04:15.

The Scottish Government currently running an enquiry into abuse of

:04:16.:04:21.

children in care, urged the SFA to set up a specific enquiry into abuse

:04:22.:04:25.

in football as the FA in England has done. To be more proactive in how we

:04:26.:04:32.

deal with child sexual exploitation. The SFA agreed and announced Martin

:04:33.:04:36.

Henry, here giving evidence to a Scottish Parliament committee, is

:04:37.:04:38.

the man who will share it. Mr Henry Scottish Parliament committee, is

:04:39.:04:43.

has over 40 years clinical and friends of experience in the field

:04:44.:04:46.

of child and public protection and, most recently, was manager of stop

:04:47.:04:51.

it now Scotland, the national programme for the prevention of

:04:52.:04:57.

child sexual abuse. This biography states his professional expertise is

:04:58.:05:00.

in the investigation and assessment of child sexual abuse and in working

:05:01.:05:05.

with men who have problematic sexual behaviours, including those who are

:05:06.:05:09.

found online. It is the amount of work Mr Henry has done with

:05:10.:05:12.

offenders which is concerning some abuse survivors. We could look at it

:05:13.:05:18.

and say he has the perfect background, he knows all about

:05:19.:05:23.

perpetrators and teens about prevention and found the perfect

:05:24.:05:28.

gent -- prevention. How does it feel to survivors who have raised

:05:29.:05:33.

concerns? They feel as if it is someone who does not understand

:05:34.:05:37.

their needs, only the perpetrator. They don't feel he is the right

:05:38.:05:40.

person to look into what that means to survivors. Six years ago in

:05:41.:05:47.

Edinburgh, the man at the centre of the largest child abuse network ever

:05:48.:05:50.

uncovered in Scotland were sentenced to lengthy prison terms. One of them

:05:51.:05:56.

was jailed for a minimum of 16 years for sexually assaulting a baby,

:05:57.:05:59.

showing pictures of that abuse and offering the child to others. James

:06:00.:06:05.

Rennie was the chief Executive of LGBT use. Martin Henry was not

:06:06.:06:12.

involved in any way with these crimes, youngsters who used the

:06:13.:06:17.

service winner amongst the victims, police traced after he sent a

:06:18.:06:21.

message to another paedophile from the LGBT US officers. Some survivors

:06:22.:06:25.

believe have not spotted a paedophile working in this

:06:26.:06:29.

organisation, Mr Henry's position is weakened as chair of the

:06:30.:06:33.

wide-ranging enquiry. You might see it as an to say he cannot be that

:06:34.:06:37.

word because he didn't pick up on something many others probably

:06:38.:06:41.

wouldn't have picked up on, but, again, it is just the whole nature

:06:42.:06:46.

of people having trust in this enquiry, it is about how survivors

:06:47.:06:49.

feel that is most important. The most important thing is for

:06:50.:06:53.

survivors to feel fully engaged with the process and they must trust in

:06:54.:06:57.

it. We have tried to reach Martin Henry but he is out of the country.

:06:58.:07:03.

And SFA spokesperson said that they consulted a wide range of

:07:04.:07:06.

stakeholders, including survivors in a green terms of reference for the

:07:07.:07:10.

independent review and subsequent appointment of a chair. The chair

:07:11.:07:13.

has amassed unrivalled experience in many facets of child protection in a

:07:14.:07:20.

40 year career, including his own of vice convener to discourage

Parliament cross-party group on survivors of sexual abuse. Jenin

:07:24.:07:27.

Rennie and an abuse survivor met with the SFA yesterday and she said

:07:28.:07:30.

it was a constructive meeting, but she went to see how they respond to

:07:31.:07:35.

the concerns being raised. This highlights the difficulty in

:07:36.:07:38.

appointing a charity such a sensitive enquiry that would be

:07:39.:07:41.

acceptable to all of those who wish to take part. Especially those who

:07:42.:07:46.

have been abused. For them, the issue of trust is central.

:07:47.:07:50.

A 13-year-old boy who was found in Edinburgh after going missing

:07:51.:07:52.

over the weekend, has died in hospital.

:07:53.:07:54.

Police say Blake Ross, who's believed to have had diabetes,

:07:55.:07:56.

fell ill on a bus in the city centre on Monday evening.

:07:57.:07:59.

An investigation into police actions has now begun.

:08:00.:08:01.

Police now say that 13-year-old Blake Rossi was living in care and

:08:02.:08:19.

who had gone missing and had been missing since Saturday afternoon was

middle of Edinburgh on Monday afternoon at four o'clock. The

driver called the police and radioed into his own garage controlling for

:08:35.:08:39.

help. Blake was taken to the sick kids Hospital in Edinburgh,

:08:40.:08:43.

unfortunately he died on Monday evening at nine o'clock. Police say

:08:44.:08:47.

the cause of death is unexplained, but we understand it is linked to

:08:48.:08:52.

his underlying health condition for which he was taking medication. Now,
