Report: More Than 17 Million US Youngsters With Mental Illnesses Are Not Treated.

Medscape (5/8, Lowry) reports that a report released by the Child Mind Institute in New York City reveals that “more than 17 million” US youngsters “have or have had a diagnosable mental illness, yet most are not treated.” However, “the Child Mind Institute’s Children’s Mental Health Report also highlights the effective treatments that are available, the importance of early intervention, and the costs of not recognizing and addressing childhood mental illness.” Medscape points out that the “Child Mind Institute has no affiliation with the pharmaceutical industry.”
