About 13 to 20 percent of children and adolescents in the United States struggle with a mental illness. That means about 1 in 5 teens ages 13-18 have or will have serious mental illness. In fact, the number of children with a psychiatric disorder is higher than the number of children with cancer, diabetes, and AIDS – combined. Half of mental illness occurs before the age of 14, and 75% by 24 years of age.
Why Choose Integrated Care Clinic for the Treatment of Your Child?
With the percentage of pediatric mental illness being so high, unfortunately there are not many psychologists or therapists that specialize in delivering treatment to this specific age group. That is how the therapists at Integrated Care Clinic differ from other providers. Some clinicians at Integrated Care Clinic have dedicated their entire education and training around the treatment of children and adolescents.
