About half of all Americans will experience a mental health concern at some point in their lives, and most will originate in childhood. Mental health issues are among the most common conditions that general pediatricians deal with, and if they are not identified or treated early they can have severe consequences. It is therefore time for us to examine this issue in a serious manner and place this agenda on the national stage.
