Child / Adolescent Mental Health Statistic

Posted

Greetings fellow psychos ;)

I'm trying to find some statistics to use in a Diagnosis group for the unit I'm working on. The idea is to add it to the ongoing Medication groups I've been doing. I want to give some statistics to show they aren't alone. In searching the internet, it seems every disorder has it's own site. So far I've come up with

2 out of every 10 teenagers will experience depression before they become an adult.

2 million kids have ADHD

and I'm not even sure these aren't guestimates to enhance their cause.

Does anyone know of a reliable source? I'm trying to cover the ones most frequently seen on my unit

Depression

Anxiety

PTSD

Bipolar

Conduct disorder

Eating disorder

Psychosis

ADHD

OCD

Self Injurious Behavior

Suicide

I know some of these overlap. I need to get this together ASAP so who better to turn to than Allnurses.com?
