Dear Department of Health and Social Care,
I would like to make a freedom of information request.
How many times, over the past three years, have teenagers with mental health issues been held overnight in prison cells because of a lack of suitable hospital beds.
I would also like to know the longest amount of time a teenager was held in a prison cell who was experiencing mental health issues over the past three years.
