Mental health announcement

The province announced a new mental health centre for children and teens

On Monday, the Alberta government announced the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation was donating $26 million towards a new children and adolescent mental health centre near the Glenrose Hospital, which would go along with the $200 million set aside in the 2018 provincial budget. In Hawaii, 7.6 percent of kids had at least one mental health disorder, while the prevalence in ME was 27.2 percent. The prevalence of childhood mental health problems ranged from a low of 7.6% in Hawaii to a high of 27.2% in Maine.

"What was concerning from these findings was that nearly half of the children across the United States with a mental health disorder did not receive treatment or counselling from a mental health professional", Whitney said by email. National survey data were used to estimate how common mental health disorders were in children at the national and state levels, along with how common mental health care use was in children. From the 50,212 surveys completed, the authors from Michigan Medicine at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor estimated that 16.5 percent - 7.7 million - of 46.6 million children nationwide have at least one mental health disorder, and 49.4 percent of children with a mental health disorder did not receive needed treatment or counseling from a mental health professional.

Parents responded to a prompt: "Has a doctor or other health care provider EVER told you that this child has" a mental health disorder. "If yes, does this child now have the condition?" Of these again, only around half received treatment or counselling from a qualified mental health provider in the year prior to the survey.

The study authors wrote, "In children, mental health disorders have deleterious consequences on individual and socioeconomic factors and can impede healthful transitioning into adulthood, and the incidence of mental health disorders has been increasing over the decades".

It's very unlikely that children diagnosed with mental health disorders aren't in treatment because they no longer need it, Lamparyk added.

This means many families face long wait times, which can, in turn, lead to worsening of the underlying mental health condition in the child and an eventual need for more treatment sessions than if the condition had been addressed in its early stages, explained Mautone.

"Mental health diagnosis is just part of a larger picture of our overall health and well-being and tied to most, if not all, other aspects of general health and well-being", Lamparyk said.
