Child and Adolescent Mental Health

For both intellectual and practical reasons, increasing attention has over the past thirty years or so, been paid to the mental health status of children and adolescents, as a category distinct from adult mental health. To what degree the mental health issues of children and adolescents are actually distinct from those of adults, and what differences are relevant in issues of treatment and public policy are interesting and signficant questions. The links below are intended to promote more general discussion of child and adolescent mental health, both in and of itself and in this broader context.
