Children In Mental Health Crisis


David Satcher, the U.S. Surgeon General, is releasing a report calling for more attention to be paid to the mental health of youngsters, calling the current situation a "crisis."

Satcher says that 1 in 10 children have some kind of mental disorder, but fewer than 1 in 5 receive any treatment. "If children can't learn, can't develop properly, it's going to interfere with their whole life," he says.

Satcher believes that untreated mental health disorders lead to more crime and other bad behaviors. Even when the problems are noticed, juvenile doctors say they have trouble to get serious mental help for their young patients.
