Prevalence, Persistence, and Severity of Psychiatric Illness in Teens

Sobering statistics reveal the necessity of investing in research today.

The diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders in childhood would drastically reduce the effects of symptoms among the teenage population.  An investment in research now could save a countless number of teenagers from social impairment, behavioral issues, school/work failures and suicidal idealization.

Dr. Robert L. Findling, Director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at University Hospitals Case Medical Center and professor of psychiatry and pediatrics at Case Western Reserve University, presents the findings of recent studies: psychiatric disorders were found to be not only prevalent but also substantially persistent among teenagers.

For your information we have provided a link to Dr. Findling’s presentation: Prevalence, Persistence, and Severity of Psychiatric Illness in Teens.

Your investment in research could reap dividends that will improve the chances for children to beat the symptoms and effects of psychiatric disorders.

Please consider making an investment in research that is focused solely on divining the cause of bipolar disorder in children.

Your donation today may mean relief for many – and for all the generations that will follow.  It is an investment in everyone’s future.
