Mental health problems

Out of the about 74.5 million children in the United States, an estimated 17.1 million have or have had a psychiatric disorder1, more than the number of children with cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined, according to statistics.

Also, half of all psychiatric illness occurs before the age of 14, putting the victims at risk of engaging in substance abuse which may put eventually get them prosecuted and ruin their education.
