In reply: Sholl asserts that our case for reform of youth mental health services is based largely on personal opinion. In fact, as detailed in the Journal supplement,1 it is based on hard epidemiological facts, the latest developmental perspectives and a growing evidence base. Consequently, it has been widely supported by young people, families, governments and the community.
