  • Alberta government announces new children and adolescent mental health centre at Edmonton's Glenrose Hospital Monday Feb. 11 2019

Half of all American children with a mental health condition are not getting the necessary treatment, according to a new study released on Monday.

The researchers analyzed data from the 2016 National Survey of Children's Health, a nationwide survey administered to parents of children and teens. There were cases of depression, anxiety, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorders etc.

Peterson found that, based on the nationally representative survey and estimates, about 7.7 million US children, or about 16.5%, have at least one of those disorders. 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. In Hawaii, for instance, 7.6% of youngsters had one of many conditions, in contrast with 27.2% in Maine.

"Mental health disorders are certainly stigmatised conditions and can be very debilitating in terms of healthful growth, especially for children and adolescents", said study co-author Daniel Whitney of the University of MI.

"We have known that the number of children who have mental illness and that go untreated is very high", she added.

There are a number of difficulties and challenges for children and their families when it comes to accessing mental health services, explained Jennifer Mautone, psychologist in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Coverage too is an issue she said.

Researchers found only half of them got treatment or counseling from a mental health provider in the last 12 months.

The new facility will provide treatment for children in Edmonton and northern Alberta for mental health and substance abuse.

Among the challenges, families are concerned about the stigma of a mental health condition and being able to afford treatment.

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.
