Posted on Feb 11 2019
Reports on a new study published in JAMA Pediatrics. The researchers analyzed data from the 2016 National Survey of Children's Health, a nationwide survey administered to parents of children and teens. Of the 46.6 million children ages 6 through 18 whose parents completed the survey, 7.7 million had at least one mental health condition, such as depression, anxiety or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and only half received treatment or counseling from a mental health provider in the 12 months prior to the survey.
