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


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


However some young people are waiting more than a year


to access Calms, a mental health service specifically


Charities and youth organisations say there's a postcode


Our health correspondent, Lisa Summers, reports.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


authorities say budget pressures have led to a lack of psychologist


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


FA to think again about the man they have appointed


to chair their review of child abuse in football.


The SFA announced earlier this month that Martin Henry


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


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


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


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


The Scottish Government currently running an enquiry into abuse of


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


it now Scotland, the national programme for the prevention of


child sexual abuse. This biography states his professional expertise is


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


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


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


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


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


perpetrators and teens about prevention and found the perfect


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


believe have not spotted a paedophile working in this


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


And SFA spokesperson said that they consulted a wide range of


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


independent review and subsequent appointment of a chair. The chair


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


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


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


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


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


the concerns being raised. This highlights the difficulty in


appointing a charity such a sensitive enquiry that would be


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


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


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


over the weekend, has died in hospital.


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


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


An investigation into police actions has now begun.


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


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


found ill omnibus, in for Lucien Boss, here on London Road in the


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


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


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


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


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


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


the number for a bus which Blake was discovered on travels across


Edinburgh from east to west on a route that starts not very far from


where Blake was seen on Saturday afternoon at around half three.


Police would like anybody who knows anything about his movements since


Saturday afternoon to get in touch as they proceed with this


investigation. Urgent safety checks should be


carried out on hundreds of public buildings constructed after the year


2000, architects have warned. The Royal Incorporation


of Architects in Scotland said a lack of scrutiny over building


techniques, could put lives at risk. It follows the publication


of a report which raised concerns about building standards at 17


schools in Edinburgh. The Scottish government said it had


written to councils about the issue. A ?3 million teacher training

Some cloudy and wet weather across parts of central southern England in


particular. Mind for all, the pressure in the north-west. As we


head through the afternoon into the evening, the second band of rain


started to arrive from the West. Coming in it work Wednesday night,


the rain pushing in from the west with a strengthening southern wind


and potentially gales in the Western Isles. The pressure with this as we


had ordered Thursday, working eastward and it went fairly

morning and breezy. Westerly winds, you'll notice them through the


central belt, but try by the afternoon and some brightness. Once

ridge of high pressure. That should keep things try and settle for the


end of the week. It will keep this weather front at bay. Some


brightness again and it should be mined for all.
