Episode 17 “Alarming Study”

The growing sentiment in the USA is that the mental health issues are on the rise amongst children and that many of these children are not currently getting the help they need. To bolster this claim with some real hard data, a new study recently published highlighted some alarming statistics on the rate at which children are suffering from mental health disease, how many of them are getting help, and how those rates vary amongst different states. The authors cite the stigma of mental health disease, lack of health insurance coverage, and the shortage of mental health providers as some of the major reasons for children not getting the help we need. Join me on this episode as I discuss the results of this study and their implications. Info sourced from study referenced above and a summary article from CNN.
