Child and Adolescent Mental Health

Many mental disorders have their beginnings in childhood or adolescence. The National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey found that 13 percent of children ages 8 to 15 had at least one mental disorder, a rate that is comparable to diabetes, asthma, and other diseases of childhood. Yet, mental disorders often go undiagnosed and untreated for years. NIMH’s research focuses on identifying symptoms early and finding effective treatments that can have a significant impact on how children develop and function as they grow into adults.
