The latest annual figures from The Tavistock Clinic, the country's only gender identity clinic for under-18s, reveal surprising statistics. Reporter Jenny Kleeman talks to Consultant Clinical Psychologists Dr Polly Carmichael and Dr Bernadette Wren, and to Sasha, who received treatment from the Tavistock clinic in his teens.

Cardiff born artist Gwenno on mixing electronic synth pop with Welsh and Cornish lyrics and her sci-fi inspiration.

Almost a quarter of children referred to specialist mental health services get turned away and some wait up to two and a half years to be seen, according to a report from the think tank Centre Forum. What's the impact? With Carole Easton, Chair of mental health charity Young Minds and Chief Exec of the Young Women's Trust.

We look at the impact of new guidelines from Pope Francis arguing for more understanding by the Catholic Church of the modern realities of family life. How could they affect some of the more divisive issues facing the church community: offering communion to the divorced and remarried, contraception, the treatment of gay Catholics and sex education? Caroline Farrow, a columnist with the Catholic Universe, and Joanna Moorhead of the Guardian discuss.
