Approximately 4 million children and adolescents suffer from a mental health issue, impairing them at school, home, or in their social groups. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates the following prevalence rates for diagnosable mental health conditions among children 3-17 years of age:
- Attention-deficit hyperactivity (ADHD): 6.8%
- Depression: 2%
- Autism: 1.1%
- Behavioral conditions: 3.5%
- Anxiety: 3%
- Tourette syndrome: 0.2%
This is only a partial representation of issues experienced by children and adolescents. Peer pressure, life changes and stressors, and normal developmental changes can prompt hardships for children. It can be difficult to understand the best method to handle these struggles.
Young children develop quickly. The ups and downs of all types of relationships can become confusing for adolescents to navigate, but they are necessary for healthy development.
