What is Child and Adolescent Disorder?

Children can develop the same mental health conditions as adults, but their symptoms may be different.

Psychiatric disorders among children are common, though often underdiagnosed. The CDC estimates that one in six children between the ages of two and eight have a mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder. Behavioral problems, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, and depression are among the most common mental health disorders among children and adolescents.
