Mental Health

Surveys note that 20% to 33% of disability in adolescents is due to mental disorders (77-80). Major depression is found in 9 of every 1000 preschool children, 20/1000 of school-age children, and nearly 50/1000 adolescents and nearly 50/1000 adults (78). There is a 1:1 male to female ratio in children with depression, but a 1:2 male to female ratio is noted in adolescents. Depression can be noted with various comorbid conditions, such as anxiety disorders, disruptive behavioral disorders, substance abuse disorders and others. Potential consequences of depression are listed in Table 9. Depression may occur with chronic illness and complicate compliance with treatment recommendations.
