Extract

Up to one in five U.S. children experiences a mental disorder each year, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and only 21% of affected children get treatment. To estimate prevalence rates, the CDC compiled and analyzed 2005–2011 data for children age 3 to 17 years from several federal surveys and national databases. The result is CDC’s first comprehensive look at children’s mental health. Ruth Perou, Ph.D., child development studies team leader at the CDC and lead author of the report, said that the agency plans to continue updating these statistics and to present reports on adults' and children’s mental health issues more frequently.
