How common are mental health disorders, treatment in children?

Roughly one in six U.S. kids have at least one mental health disorder, and only about half of them receive treatment from a mental health professional, a new study suggests. This was a national survey that was taken by parents of 46.6 million children and adolescents between ages 6 and 18 years.

"Kids and teens will have access to hospital beds if they need treatment for their mental health, they will also have access to school-based programming right here on site, and the care will include specialized therapeutic programs that are proven to be beneficial to stronger emotional and mental health."

They found seven-point-seven million children had at least one mental health condition. The prevalence of childhood mental health problems ranged from a low of 7.6% in Hawaii to a high of 27.2% in Maine. They also pose the greatest risk for long-term problems if not treated early, says study senior author Mark D. Peterson, PhD, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

However, youngster and adolescent psychiatrists and psychologists weren't in any respect stunned by the outcomes. Coverage too is an issue she said. There is a selection of difficulties and challenges for kids and their households in the case of accessing psychological health providers, defined Jennifer Mautone, psychologist within the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences on the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

According to authors and experts in the field, another challenge is communicating with the education system, juvenile justice system, child welfare system and health care system that look after the interest of children and teenagers. However, numerous systems are often times not talking to each other, which can lead the kids to fall through the cracks and the families to not receive the support they need.

"On that topic, I'll be on season nine of Total Divas , which is something I'm super excited about". You can listen to the interview below as Deville calls in at the start of the show.

A few states stood out for having high proportions of children with mental health disorders and high proportions of untreated kids: Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Utah.

By embedding themselves with pediatricians, mental health providers build on the existing trust and are able to reach families in a familiar environment, said Mautone, who leads one such program - the Healthy Minds, Healthy Kids Initiative at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

"We are readily available, many times the same day, to explain our service, meet the family and begin to understand what the challenges are", she added.

The study wasn't a controlled experiment created to prove whether or how specific factors might directly impact how many kids are diagnosed or treated for mental health disorders.
